Recent geophysical and petrological observations indicate the presence of water and hydrous melts in and around the mantle transition zone (MTZ), for example, prominent low-velocity zones detected by seismological methods. Experimental data and computational predictions describe the influence of water on elastic properties of mantle minerals. Using thermodynamic relationships and published databases, we calculated seismic velocities and densities of mantle rocks in and around the MTZ in thedoi:10.3390/geosciences9120505 fatcat:jl3t5l746vbzlfrudaoatoqe4y
