A slab in depth: Three-dimensional geometry and evolution of the Indo-Australian plate

Richards, Simon; Lister, Gordon; Kennett, Brian

Description

Geoscientists use plate tectonics to explain many aspects of both continental evolution and evolution of the planet as a whole. The subduction of material at convergent plate boundaries forms a fundamental component to the theory of plate tectonics. Plates, continents, subduction zones, and spreading centers all exhibit motion and geometric evolution, so to try and resolve the past geometries of the planet, geologists have utilized plate tectonic reconstructions. Here we present a...[Show more]
