      The Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, and The Mesosphere Lithosphere The asthenosphere is a soft layer of the mantle on which pieces of the lithosphere move. Asthenosphere Mesosphere Beneath the asthenosphere is the strong, lower part of the mantle called the mesosphere. INSIDE THE.   The lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary divides the rigid lid from the weaker mantle and is fundamental in plate tectonics. However, its depth and defining mechanism are not well known. We analyzed 15 years of global seismic data using P -to- S (Ps) converted phases and imaged an interface that correlates with tectonic environment, varying from 95 ± 4 kilometers beneath Precambrian shields Cited by:

Unfortu- nately, the term has also been applied to the surface thermal boundary layer (TBL) and a shallow enrichedFile Size: 2MB. Lithosphere and asthenosphere are fundamental concepts of plate tectonics and continental evolution, yet their properties, origin, and evolution are poorly understood.

This special section is on the multi-disciplinary observations and models that pertain to the concept of the lithosphere-asthenosphere system, and in particular the lithosphere- asthenosphere boundary (LAB), as well as possible mid-lithospheric discontinuities (MLD).

The asthenosphere is solid upper mantle material that is so hot that it behaves plastically and can flow. The lithosphere rides on the asthenosphere. Summary. The lithosphere is the brittle crust and uppermost mantle. The asthenosphere is a solid but it can flow, like toothpaste. The lithosphere rests on the asthenosphere.
