Electrical and seismological structure of the martian mantle and the detectability of impact-generated anomalies

15 Mar 2020 Ruedas Thomas Breuer Doris

We derive synthetic electrical conductivity, seismic velocity, and density distributions from the results of martian mantle convection models affected by basin-forming meteorite impacts. The electrical conductivity features an intermediate minimum in the strongly depleted topmost mantle, sandwiched between higher conductivities in the lower crust and a smooth increase towards almost constant high values at depths greater than 400 km...
