a Water solubility maps of the mantle. Upper mantle only (Iwamori 2007). b The full range of mantle temperatures and pressures. Lines indicate cold (blue), average (green), and hot (red) mantle geotherms for cases of 12 ocean masses of total water without (a) or with (b) DHMS effects. c Fitting for determining the water solubility of phase H included in b (Nishi et al. 2014; Ohtani et al. 2014; Ohira et al. 2014; Ohira et al. 2016)
