This suggests a storage of radiogenic heat producing elements below the continental crust and MORB-source, possibly in a layer in the deep interior.

Helium and argon isotope systematics constrain mantle and crustal components in the hydrothermal fluids. 4Ar/SHe (4.5 104) are close to the mid-ocean ridge basalt value, implying that 4Ar is mantle in origin. Radiogenic isotope ratios of the mantle endmember (4Ar/4He = 0.69 ___ 0.06) are similar to contemporary geothermal fluids.

In particular the radiogenic heat production in the mantle is negligible compared to that of the crust. The geotherm in continental lithosphere is therefore best described by two relationships, one for the crust (equation in the previous slide), one for the lithospheric mantle.

Nov 17, 2020 For understanding radiogenic heat production in the mantle of a planet, the presence of U and Th is important in terms of its concentration relative to the bulk mass of silicates. The ratio of europium to magnesium (Eu/Mg) serves as a good proxy for this since U and Th are hard to detect in the spectra of stars.

Oct 01, 2016 Crustal heat production is decreasing with time because it is due to the radioactive decay of Uranium Thorium and Potassium. Its rundown is responsible for the secular cooling of lithospheric roots at a typical rate of about 100 K Gy − 1, implying complex thermal interactions with a convecting mantle that is not cooling at the same rate.

Radiogenic heat production in the Earth is dominated by three elements: K, Th and U, which mainly reside in the Earth's mantle and crust. The global budget is determined from the fact that Th and U are both refractory. Thus, it is believed that the Th/U ratio of the bulk Earth must be identical to those of chondritic meteorites. In contrast, K is a volatile element, but like Th and U …

Since mantle radiogenic heat production controls how much heat is extracted from the core, it will also influence the presence or absence of a dynamo.
