Nature, Published online: 05 January 2022; doi:10.1038/s41586-021-04157-zX-ray diffraction experiments indicate that the depression of the Earth’s 660-kilometre seismic discontinuity beneath cold subduction zones is caused by a phase transition from akimotoite to bridgmanite, leading to slab stagnation.
