Earth’s E Prime Layer

Why in news ?

Recently, researchers have made a groundbreaking discovery of a mysterious layer – the E prime layer – positioned above Earth’s core.

How Did E Prime Layer Develop Over Time?

  • New research reveals a fascinating process where tectonic plates, carrying surface water, have been transporting it deep into the Earth’s interior over billions of years.
  • As this water reaches the core-mantle boundary, located approximately 1,800 miles beneath the Earth’s surface, it instigates significant chemical changes that directly influence the structure of the Earth’s core.
