en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asthenosphere

The asthenosphere is the highly viscous, mechanically weak and ductilely deforming region of the upper mantle of the Earth. It lies below the lithosphere, at depths between approximately 80 and 200 km (50 and 120 miles) below the surface. The Lithosphere-Asthenosphere boundary is usually referred to as LAB. ... Above the asthenosphere, at the same rate of deformation, rock behaves ...
