Monsoon speeds up Indian plate motion

Iaffaldano, Giampiero; Husson, Laurent; Bunge, Hans-Peter


Short-term plate motion variations on the order of a few Myr are a powerful probe into the nature of plate boundary forces, as mantle-related buoyancies evolve on longer time-scales. New reconstructions of the ocean-floor spreading record reveal an increasing number of such variations, but the dynamic mechanisms producing them are still unclear. Here we show quantitatively that climate changes may impact the short-term evolution of plate motion by linking explicitly the observed...[Show more]
