Abstract

The origins of the oceans and Earth's volatile atmosphere are major unsolved problems in earth sciences. The recent study by Finger et al. of the crystal chemistry of a water-bearing mineral phase, cryptically named phase B and grown under conditions equivalent to a depth in the Earth of 360 km, dramatically demonstrates that several times the Earth's visible water budget could be stored in the mantle.
