  • Shen, Yang; Solomon, Sean C.; Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Wolfe, Cecily J. (Springer Nature, 1998-09)
    Iceland, one of the most thoroughly investigated hotspots1,2,3, is generally accepted to be the manifestation of an upwelling mantle plume4. Yet whether the plume originates from the lower mantle or from a convective instability at a thermal boundary ...
  • Bjarnason, Ingi Þorleifur; Silver, Paul G.; Rümpker, Georg; Solomon, Sean C. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2002-12)
    We report on observations of upper mantle anisotropy from the splitting of teleseismic shear waves (SKS, SKKS, and PKS) recorded by the ICEMELT broadband seismometer network in Iceland. In a ridge-centered hot spot locale, mantle anisotropy may be ...
  • Heřmanská, Matylda; Kleine, Barbara Irene; Stefansson, Andri (Hindawi Limited, 2019-08-05)
    Supercritical fluids exist in the roots of many active high-temperature geothermal systems. Utilization of such supercritical resources may multiply energy production from geothermal systems; yet, their occurrence, formation mechanism, and chemical ...
  • Mundl-Petermeier, A.; Walker, R.J.; Jackson, M.G.; Blichert-Toft, J.; Kurz, M.D.; Halldórsson, Sæmundur Ari (Elsevier BV, 2019-10-20)
    Studies of short-lived radiogenic isotope systems and noble gas isotopic compositions of plume-derived rocks suggest the existence of primordial domains in Earth's present-day mantle. Tungsten-182 anomalies together with high 3He/4He in Phanerozoic ...
