Paper on double-diffusive translation of the inner core published in Geophys. J. Int.
Renaud Deguen’s paper, co-authored by Thierry Alboussière and myself, presents results from linear stability analysis and direct numerical models of double-diffusive convection in Earth’s inner core. Convection can happen if a destabilizing compositional gradient is established in the inner core during its formation, even if the temperature field is stabilizing. Get all the details in [the paper]!
