Our understanding of rheological properties of the Earth’s interior is based on the combination of direct geophysical observations (in which seismic velocities and attenuation depend on the mechanical properties of matter) and laboratory measurements of mineral physics properties. Anelastic relaxation in minerals and rocks is one of the main origins of seismic attenuation. To interpret seismic atten- uation due to anelasticity, it is essential to understand the anelastic properties of the minerals and rocks through which the waves pass. The mechanical properties of the Earth’s interior, however, are complicated because rocks are multi-phase or even multi-state.
