Dear colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract in our AGU 2021 Fall Meeting session focused on investigating multi-scale dynamics of the Earth's mantle with computational methods. The session will be held in a hybrid format with both in-person and virtual presentations. You can submit the abstract following the link to the session herehttps://agu.confex.com/agu/fm21/prelim.cgi/Session/122732. The deadline for abstract submission is August 4th, 2021.

Please find more details on the session below:

DI007 - Exploring multi-scale mantle dynamics with computational methods
The dynamics and evolution of Earth's mantle are governed by structures and processes interacting on a wide range of scales: long-wavelength mantle convection and large thermochemical structures are intimately linked with small-scale processes in the boundary layers, and understanding the effective properties of mantle rocks require insights on the mineral scale. These processes are not only multi-scale spatially but also act over strongly different timescales. Understanding the Earth's mantle across these scales is a problem typically outside the range of analytical solutions. Applying numerical methods to capture vastly different scales and developing clever parameterisations to tackle this multi-scale problem are necessary. This session will explore the link between Earth's mantle processes operating on different spatial and/or temporal scales. We invite contributions from various disciplines including geodynamics, seismology, mineral physics, and that highlight computational advances in tackling dynamical problems spanning scales in time and space.
