Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the session S-IT27: Oceanic
lithosphere and asthenosphere at the JpGU-AGU joint meeting 2020 and
hope that you will consider sumbitting an abstract to this session.

The oceanic lithosphere/asthenosphere system (LAS) is one of the most
fundamental features of plate tectonics. In recent years, the
elucidation of the oceanic lithosphere/asthenosphere system has become
one of the hot topics in solid earth science. New data from the ocean
floor are being extensively obtained under the Pacific Array initiative
( and others, and a great
variety of views are proposed and discussed. In this session, we will
discuss on observation technologies, views of the oceanic
lithosphere/asthenosphere system, the strategies for interpretation of
the observations (including seismic and/or electrical conductivity
anisotropy), constraints/ideas on the role and abundance of water/melt
in the mantle (including the transition zone), and other related topics
for elucidating this enigmatic system. We call for contributions from
diverse fields, including but not limited to seismology,
magnetotellurics, petrology/mineralogy, dynamical modelling, and mineral
