Kinematics of subduction and subduction-induced flow in the upper mantle

Schellart, Wouter

Description

Results of fluid dynamical experiments are presented to model the kinematics of lithospheric subduction in the upper mantle. The experiments model a dense highviscosity plate (subducting lithosphere) overlying a less dense low-viscosity layer (upper mantle). The overriding lithosphere is not incorporated. Several important features of slab behavior were investigated including the temporal variability of hinge line migration, the kinematic behavior of the slab and the subduction-induced upper...[Show more]
