Extended Data Figure 3

These cross-sections are similar to those in Extended Data Fig. 1, but now feature two approximately orthogonal sections through the African LLSVP: ae, traversing from northwest to southeast; fj, traversing from southwest to northeast. The African LLSVP is more massive, and therefore better resolved in S40RTS, PRI-S05, HMSL-S06 and GyPSuM than are other plumes. As in Extended Data Fig. 2, we again note some degree of similarity between SEMUCB-WM1 (a), PRI-S05 (c) and HMSL-S06 (d) below the Cape Verde plume.
