Low viscosity channels and the stability of long wavelength convection
Mantle convection simulations with a low viscosity channel, akin to the Earth's asthenosphere, are characterized by long wavelength flow structure. Boundary layer theory predicts that as the viscosity of the channel ...
The thermal and mechanical structure of stable continental lithosphere within a dynamic mantle
Understanding the interaction between continental lithosphere and the convecting mantle is not only important for determining the thermal structure and the role of continental lithosphere in the Earth's heat loss system, ...
