An implicit free surface algorithm for geodynamical simulations

Kramer, Stephan C.; Wilson, Cian R.; Davies, Rhodri


Identifying the dominant controls on Earth's surface topography is of critical importance to understanding both the short- and long-term evolution of geological processes and past- and present-day dynamics of Earth's coupled mantle-lithosphere system. The ability to simulate a stress free - or a so-called 'free surface' - boundary condition is required to examine such processes via numerical models. However, at present, geodynamical models incorporating a free surface are limited, as most...[Show more]
