Bathymetry of the Pacific plate and its implications for thermal evolution of lithosphere and mantle dynamics

Zhong, Shijie; Ritzwoller, Michael; Shapiro, Nikolai; Landuyt, William; Huang, Jinshui; Wessel, Paul


A long-standing question in geodynamics is the cause of deviations of ocean depth or seafloor topography from the prediction of a cooling half-space model (HSC). Are the deviations caused entirely by mantle plumes or lithospheric reheating associated with sublithospheric small-scale convection or some other mechanisms? In this study we analyzed the age and geographical dependences of ocean depth for the Pacific plate, and we removed the effects of sediments, seamounts, and large igneous...[Show more]
