Hubbard Coil

There is an East-West asymmetry in the inner core seismological data. There is a model which explains this by differences at the surface of the inner core - melting in one hemisphere and crystallization in the other

did you know when talking about asymmetry that the earth's core is "anisotropic"

This finding, confirmed only within the past two years, quickly led to the conclusion that Earth's solid-iron inner core is "anisotropic" -- it has a directional quality, a texture similar to the grain in wood, that allows sound waves to go faster when they travel in a certain direction.
