The territory west of India was called Persis by the Greeks who later called the entire empire Persia.

According to John Eiler (2003; Inside the Subduction Factory, Geophys. Monogr. Ser., vol. 138) the question of why volcanoes appear at ocean ridges and "hotspots" is fundamentally a solved problem. Ridges passively tap the ambient convecting mantle while "hotspots" are fed by hot, actively upwelling, jets from the core-mantle boundary. Whole mantle convection and deep slab penetration have also been deemed as proved, by visual inspection of color pictures. High-resolution broad-band seismic data, inverted for anisotropy and absolute seismic velocities (as opposed to relative travel times over a limited aperture array), however, suggest that the MORB source is actually in the sinking-slab-induced broad passive upwellings from the transition zone while intraplate volcanoes tap the low-velocity part of the surface boundary layer. There is increasing evidence that the upper mantle boundary layer (Gutenbergs Region B) is not only buoyant (e.g. PREM plus Mark Simons) but is a mélange that includes ...
