Dear Colleagues,
The joint IAGA-IASPEI Scientific Assembly will take place on 21-27th August
2021 online. The deadline has been extended to **April 30th **. Please
consider submitting an abstract to our SYmposium (S13) - please find
relevant links below!
*Seismic structures in the mantle*

*Conveners:* Christine Thomas (Germany), Barbara Romanowicz, (France/USA),
Sebastian Rost (UK), Stéphane Rondenay (Norway)

*Session details:*
Dynamic processes and mineralogical changes generate seismic observables
that can be used to infer the current state of the mantle. Seismic studies
of interfaces in the mantle provide constraints on composition, temperature
and flow. Seismic tomography provides evidence for regional and local
changes of temperature and composition and images dynamic processes driven
by convection and plate tectonics. Combinations of global, regional and
local studies of Earth's mantle highlight differences and connections
between different tectonic regimes in the mantle. Together with constraints
from mineral physics, geochemistry and geodynamics, seismological studies
contribute to our understanding of the dynamics and evolution of the deep
Earth shaping our planet. This session invites contributions from all areas
of seismology investigating the structure of the Earth's mantle from the
lithosphere to the core-mantle boundary aiming to image the dynamics and
structure of the planet.

*Abstract submission deadline extended: 30th April 2021*

*Early bird registration deadline is June 30th, 2021; details are here*.
