Anelasticity from seismic to tidal timescales: Theory and observations

Lau, Harriet C. P.; Faul, Ulrich


We examine strain energy dissipation of Earth's normal modes and body tides in order to compare these observations with predictions from an experimental model of intrinsic dissipation. For this comparison we employ a recently developed self-consistent treatment of modes and tides, that includes the separation of dynamical processes (self-gravity and inertia) from intrinsic attenuation. We select a set of normal modes and tides with similar depth sampling centered on the lower mantle, without...[Show more]
