Re: Save the date - Lithosphere-Asthenosphere Boundary workshop in Paris: 11-12 May 2020

The lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary is one of the fundamental plate boundaries on earth, separating the rigid lithospheric lid above the ductile asthenosphere, but its nature remains illusive. In the last 5-10 years, there has been a significant progress in imaging of the LAB using different methods, such as surface wave, receiver function, seismic reflection and seismic wide-angle, and magnetotelluric methods, providing new but unconventional insight about the LAB, challenging our understanding of plate tectonic and geodynamic processes. In order to bring all these observations together and link them with geochemical, petrological, mineralogical and geodynamic processes, we plan to organize a two-days (May 11-12, 2020) workshop at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, soon after EGU 2020 in Vienna (3-8 May).

More details to follow.
