New insights in to the strength of rocks

Editor’s Highlight—

 

This paper presents new high-resolution analyses of dislocation microstructures in deformed single crystals. The authors apply techniques that provide new insights into dislocation interactions during viscous deformation that have the potential to significantly improve our understanding of rate-limiting processes during creep. The manuscript should be of interest to a wide range of scientists interested in mantle dynamics. While results for only two samples were presented, the analysis is extensive and could pave the way for more extensive studies in the future.
