Photo: Earths Mantle Gros Morne Newfoundland

Ultramafic rock peridotite that was once in the earth's mantle and now exposed can be seen at the Tablelands in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland, Canada.

A piece of geological history is easily found in the Tablelands of Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. A place where the earth's mantle is exposed.

The earth's mantle is thought to be around 2900 km thick and is situated under the earth's crust. Tectonic plate movement and subsequent collision causing uplifting of the earth's crust and mantle millions of years ago is said to be the cause of the barren landscape seen at Tablelands today.
