There are many such mysteries in our universe, to get to the bottom of which scientists are working day and night. Surrounded by mysteries, so is our earth. Scientists have tried to understand it by making an image of the ‘mysterious’ blob present inside it. A blob is a thick layer of hot rock between our Earth’s crust and its core. Despite being solid, it flows slowly. Scientists generally believe that these blobs are related to the movement of tectonic plates, but these changes have surprised scientists. Scientists have called these ‘fascinating and complex’. Told that he is trying to understand more about them. These images are part of a study published in Nature Communications. The study focused on the circular underground pocket, called the ultra-low velocity zone beneath Hawaii. Now scientists have said that the images could prove to be a ‘milestone’ in seismology.
of mirror uk Report According to, Cambridge University Ke geophysicist, Zi Li said that these are the most fascinating and complex of all the deep interior features of the Earth. We have found the first concrete evidence to show the internal structure of the Earth, a milestone for seismology. Scientists were trying for a long time to improve these images. He used many instruments, but the images did not turn out well. The distance from the Earth’s surface made it a challenging task.
But this time the images have been prepared by computer modeling. For this, the data has been taken from the signals sent through the layers of the Earth. Through these signal responses, scientists have been able to understand that this blob is about one kilometer in size. Earlier this month, another study estimated that there are some large blobs the size of the continents of the Earth’s center.
These blobs are said to be 100 times longer than Mount Everest and scientists know very little about why they exist there. A team of researchers now believe that it is all the remains of Theia. Theia was a protoplanet that collided with Earth 4.5 million years ago. Because of this the moon was formed. According to the report, these blebs are located under West Africa and the Pacific Ocean and have been confusing seismologists for several decades.
