Mountains that are three to four times as tall as Mount Everest have been found by researchers from Arizona State University. The researchers located these enormous mountains, known as ultra-low velocity zones (ULVZs), 2,900 kilometers beneath the Earth’s surface, at the boundary between the core and mantle using seismology facilities in Antarctica.

Because they were incredibly mysterious and went unnoticed by experts, these underground mountain ranges were unknown until now. Scientists were only able to detect them through the seismic data produced by earthquakes and atomic explosions.

The tallest mountain on Earth’s surface, Mount Everest, is only about 5.5 miles (8.8 kilometers) high, whereas the researchers estimate that these mountain ranges reach heights of over 24 miles (38 kilometers).

The researchers used a high-definition imaging technique to locate these thin anomalous zones of material at the core-mantle boundary by examining thousands of seismic recordings from Antarctica. The intricate design of the deep interior of the Earth receives new insight from this discovery.
