A lithosphere is the rigid, outermost shell of a terrestrial-type planet or natural satellite that is ... The Lithosphere-Asthenosphere boundary is defined by a difference in response to stress: the lithosphere remains rigid for very long periods of ...

The Lithosphere-Asthenosphere boundary (LAB) represents a mechanical difference between ... Moreover, the rheology of the rocks depends also on the stress tensor. It means that asthenosphere could be of thermal and/or mechanical origin.

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. ... The rigid lithosphere is thought to "float" or move about on the slowly flowing ...
