A lithosphere is the rigid, outermost shell of a terrestrial-type planet or natural
satellite that is ... The thickness of the lithosphere is considered to be the depth to
the isotherm associated wi...
The lithosphere extends from the surface of Earth to a depth of about 44-62 mi (
70-100 km). This relatively cool and rigid section of Earth is believed to "float" on

Our results provide new, independent information about the lithospheric
thickness beneath the Precambrian platform of Eastern Europe and the
A rapid decrease in shear velocity in the suboceanic mantle is used to infer the
thickness of the lithosphere. It is proposed that new and highly precise group ...

Propagation of primary and secondary seismic waves help ...
The lithosphere is not only part of the mantle it is the crust and the upper part of
the mantle together. The depth of the lithosphere is 50-100 km thick.
The lithosphere is composed of the crust, and some of the upper mantle. ... km
