The part of the Earth&#x2019;s interior between the core and the crust composed of dense silicate rocks.

The density of the mantle is about 3.3&#x2013;3.4 g/cm<sup>3</sup> and the mantle is essentially non-magnetic. The mantle includes the lower lithosphere and the asthenosphere.

The part of the Earth’s interior between the core and the crust composed of dense silicate rocks. The upper surface of the mantle is the Moho discontinuity characterized by a sharp increase in P-wave velocity to 8.1±0.2 km/s. The density of the mantle is about 3.3–3.4 g/cm3 and the mantle is essentially non-magnetic. The mantle includes the lower lithosphere and the asthenosphere. Below the mantle is the core separated from the mantle by the Gutenberg-Weichert discontinuity. See Figure E-1.
