Session Description:

DI003: Advances in Understanding Earth's Dynamic Processes Using Seismic Anisotropy


"Understanding the process and evolution of mantle dynamics represents a fundamental goal of Earth science. However, it has also posed a major challenge due to the inaccessible nature of the solid Earth and uncertainties in observation and modeling. Recent advances in measuring seismic anisotropy have generated new constraints on the deformation of the Earth's interior associated with subduction zone processes, lithosphere deformation, mantle circulation, the core-mantle boundary, and growth of the inner core. In addition, novel modeling techniques now enable the simulation of dynamic processes in the Earth at unprecedented levels of resolution and physics. As a result of these combined efforts, new perspectives are emerging on the evolution of the crust, lithosphere, mantle, and core. We invite submissions on the deformation and structure of the solid Earth from seismic and MT measurements, laboratory simulation of fabrics and plastic deformation of crystals, theoretical calculations, and geodynamic modeling."
