The core as a possible source of mantle helium

Abstract:

The core has often been suggested as a source for He presently found in the mantle. If the core served as the long-term storage reservoir for He in ocean island basalts with distinctively high 3He/4He ratios, then the difficulties of maintaining an isolated mantle reservoir separate from the source of mid-ocean ridge basalts are removed. However, the possibilities of trapping He into the core and releasing it into the overlying mantle have not yet been systematically evaluated. Here some of t...
