Lithosphere thickness and mantle viscosity inverted from GPS-derived deformation rates in Fennoscandia

Zhao, S; Lambeck, Kurt; Lidberg, M

Description

Crustal deformation in Fennoscandia is associated with the glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) process that is caused by ongoing stress release of the mantle after removal of the Late Pleistocene ice sheet by ~10 calka BP. With an earth model of defined structure and rheology and an ice-sheet model of known melting history, the GIA process can be simulated by geophysical models, and the surface deformation rates can be calculated and used to compare with global positioning system (GPS)...[Show more]
