Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the Fall AGU meeting session DI005: G, LAB, and MLDs: What are they anyway? Lithospheric boundary structures within and beneath the oceans and continents.
Abstracts are due by August 3rd, 23:59 EDT.

Session Title: DI005. G, LAB, and MLDs: What are they anyway? Lithospheric boundary structures within and beneath the oceans and continents

Session ID#: 13769
Session Description:
Recent advances in seismic imaging suggest that that the internal structure of the rigid outer layer of the Earth, the lithosphere, appears to have appears more complex than a single boundary layer. Seismology, numerical modeling, mineral, and rock physics, each provide clues about the origins of these structures.

Just what can we discern from the G, LAB and MLDs? Is it significant that they occur around the same depths within the ocean and continental lithosphere? Or is that just a coincidence?
The session seeks submissions from a variety of disciplines to help define and clarify both global and regional lithospheric boundary structures inferred from observations, models, and experiments. Multidisciplinary approaches that help better understand the structure and evolution of the plates are encouraged.
