Fig. 5

Examples of the coupled core-mantle evolution varied with the strength of the oceanic lithosphere (i.e., different values of the friction coefficient of the brittle deformation of the oceanic lithosphere; see more details in Nakagawa and Tackley (2015)). Top: time variations of the chemical structure of the silicate mantle for selected values of the friction coefficient (blue: harzburgite, red: basaltic crust, and green: primordial material); bottom: diagnostics of the core evolution (temperature at CMB; heat flow across the CMB; inner core; magnetic dissipation)
