This file contains the 79 394 successful models investigated for LLSVPs. For each model, we provide 23 properties describing the composition and its main characteristics. These properties are as follows: - The six input parameters of our model (plus the proportion of Fp). R_Fe is the oxidation state, while DT is the temperature contrast between LLSVPs and far-field mantle. - The bulk composition of the rock in term of its 5 main oxides. - The chemical composition of Fp and Bm in term of their sub-phases. - The four outputs used in this study, namely the bulk rock density, the P-wave velocity (Vp), the S-wave velocity (Vs), and the bulk sound velocity (Vphi). All the details concerning the calculation are available in the corresponding article.
