Abstract

Deep magnetotelluric soundings allow to outline two conductive layers in the upper mantle. The one closer to the surface can be quite well correlated with the lower velocity layer detected by surface waves; the deeper one is much more poorly resolved and can only tentatively be associated to phase transitions. Lateral variations in electromagnetic properties seem to be present in the whole upper mantle. -Authors
