Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to our session:

“Seismic Anisotropy and Mantle Dynamics: Observations, Models, and Experiments” as part of the AGU fall meeting, December 7- 11, 2020.
The session will focus on recent progress in lower mantle studies and invites submissions from sub-fields across the Earth sciences. (
Session Description:
Understanding mantle dynamics is fundamental for the study of the solid Earth. However, there are still many challenges for investigating mantle dynamics due to the inaccessibility of the Earth’s interior and uncertainties in observations, models, and experiments. Progress in measuring seismic anisotropy has generated new constraints on mantle dynamics, including lithospheric deformation, mantle circulation, subduction zone and core-mantle boundary processes. In addition, advances in computational infrastructure have enabled Earth process modeling at unprecedented resolution. Moreover, recent experimental advances are leading to new constraints on the deformation and rheology of Earth materials at relevant temperatures and pressures. As a result of these combined efforts, new perspectives are emerging on mantle processes, deformation, and structure. We welcome submissions on mantle dynamics, including interactions with the lithosphere and core, with contributions from geodynamics, geophysics, seismic and MT measurements, and from experimental to computational constraints on rheology and deformation.

Conveners: Margarete Ann Jadamec (U. Buffalo), Thorsten Becker (U. Texas at Austin), Neala Creasy (Colorado School of Mines), Isabella Gama (Brown U.)
Invited Presenters: Fiona Ann Darbyshire (University of Quebec at Montreal UQAM) and Charis Horn (Washington University)

The deadline for abstract submission is Wednesday, 29 July at 23:59 EDT. Please feel free to pass the ad to colleagues, not on the list, who might find the session relevant.
