Dear Colleagues,

Please consider submitting your work to the session* The Physical Origin of
Geophysical Anomalies**, *in the Study of the Earth's Deep Interior (DI)
Section of the 2018 AGU Fall meeting to be held on December 10-14 in
Washington D.C.

We aim to bring together submissions from the experimental and
observational side of geophysics, and invite submission related to all
scales of Earth Science.

*Session ID: *47169

*Session Title:*

The Physical Origin of Geophysical Anomalies

*Session Description:*

Geophysical observations offer a window into the depths of the planet that
are inaccessible for direct observation. Relating geophysical anomalies to
the physical parameters we seek remains a challenge, and this ambiguity
limits the ability of geophysical methods to fully illuminate the tectonic
and dynamic processes that have shaped the Earth. This session aims to
bring together experimentalists and observationalists to discuss recent
advances on this topic. We invite submissions from either a forward
perspective, where mineral physics predicts relations between observations
and the physical state of the Earth, or from an inverse perspective, where
the observations themselves motivate a particular physical interpretation.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, quantifying melt and
water contents, the formation of seismic or electrical anisotropy, the
mechanisms that cause seismic attenuation, mapping variations in
temperature, relationships between observable quantities and viscosity, and
the composition of the crust, mantle, and core.
