Abstract

Results of experimental studies and theoretical calculations on deformation of " layer minerals are reviewed. We conclude that only the results from the experiments under high temperature and modest stress conditions are potentially applicable to the deformation fabrics in the " layer. For perovskite and post-perovskite, such experimental data are available only for analog materials. By combining those results with elastic properties, we investigate the nature of seismic anisotropy corresponding to a given deformation geometry. Both azimuthal and polarization anisotropies are expected for all minerals. For horizontal flow, perovskite will produce VSV>VSH anisotropy whereas (Mg,Fe)O shows VSH>VSV anisotropy. VSH/VSV anisotropy caused by post-perovskite depends on the elastic anisotropy and the dominant glide plane, both of which are not well constrained. If we choose (010) as a glide plane, weak VSH>VSV or VSV>VSH anisotropy will develop for shear deformation of post-perovskite depending on the elastic constants. For this glide plane, the magnitude of the anisotropy of (Mg,Fe)O is much larger than that for post-perovskite. For a vertical cylindrical flow expected for upwelling mantle plumes, VSV>VSH anisotropy is expected for both (Mg,Fe)O and post-perovskite but not for perovskite. We conclude that (Mg,Fe)O plays a more important role than post-perovskite for the interpretation of seismic anisotropy in both circum Pacific and the central Pacific " layer. In the circum Pacific regions, the seismic anisotropy can be attributed to the deformation-induced lattice-preferred orientation of (Mg,Fe)O and post-perovskite, whereas some additional contribution from aligned melt pocket might be important in the central Pacific.
