Crystallization of silicon dioxide and compositional evolution of the Earth's core
Crystallization of silicon dioxide and compositional evolution of the Earth’s core
Figure (extract): Melting experiment (run 1) at 142 GPa. Abstract The Earth's core is about ten per cent less dense than pure iron (Fe), suggesting that it contains light elements as well as iron.
