Session Title:
Evolution and Interaction of the Mantle and Core

*Conveners:*Taku Tsuchiya (Ehime Univ.)
Teh-Ru "Alex" Song (UCL)
Maxim Ballmer (ETH)
Zhou "Johnny" Zhang (UCSD)

*Invited speakers:*
Lauren Waszek (New Mexico State, ANU)
Hiroko Watanabe (Tohoku Univ.)

Session Description:
Recent observational and experimental investigations have significantly
advanced our understanding of the structure and constituent materials of
the deep Earth. However, further details of the Earth’s interior intimately
linked with formation and evolution, such as (1) detailed compositional
properties of the mantle and core including radioactive isotopes, (2) the
relationship between the origin of the heterogeneities in the core-mantle
boundary region and stable regions (primordial reservoir), and (3) chemical
stratification of the outer core and the heterogeneity in the inner core,
have remained unclear. Addressing these questions requires synergies of
multiple disciplines. This session invites researchers with a broad range
of expertise interested in the deep Earth to elucidate these unresolved
mysteries of deep Earth science, through comprehensive investigations of
the interactions between the core and mantle by combining high-pressure and
high-temperature experiments, microscale geochemical analysis,
high-resolution geophysical observations, geo-neutrino observations and
large-scale numerical simulations.
