DISCONTINUIDAD DE MOHOROVICIC PDF

Article by: Hobart M. King , Ph. The Mohorovicic Discontinuity, or "Moho," is the boundary between the crust and the mantle. The red line in the diagram shows its location. In geology the word "discontinuity" is used for a surface at which seismic waves change velocity. One of these surfaces exists at an average depth of 8 kilometers beneath the ocean basin and at an average depth of about 32 kilometers beneath the continents.

Environment What is the Mohorovicic Discontinuity? What is the Mohorovicic Discontinuity? The Mohorovicic discontinuity the Moho is the boundary lying between the crust and the mantle of the earth across which seismic waves change velocities. The discontinuity was named after Croatian seismologist and geophysicist Andrija Mohorovicic who pioneered its discovery in and explained the behavior and origin of earthquakes.
