peridotite model A model for the composition of the Earth's upper mantle based on compressional and S-wave velocities and gravity data. The probable composition is peridotite, eclogite, or an intermediate between the two. Xenoliths in kimberlites, and mafic volcanic rocks found at the surface, also suggest this composition.
