Abstract

A stagnant slab is a subducted slab of oceanic lithosphere subhorizontally deflected above, across, or below the 660 km discontinuity. This phenomenon has now been widely recognized beneath subduction zones around the circum-Pacific and in the Mediterranean. Collaboration of seismic and electromagnetic observations, mineral physics measurements, and geodynamic modeling has begun to provide a consistent picture of stagnant slab.
