  Information - MPRG8 From plate tectonics to mantle dynamics (co-listed in GD)

Event Information
Plate Tectonics is being increasingly subsumed into a new theory of mantle dynamics that encompasses the full dynamic rather than simply kinematic prediction of Earth motion and deformation using interdisciplinary techniques integrating mantle convection modelling, seismic tomography, plate kinematics and subduction history. In this session we invite contributions that concerns Mesozoic-Cenozoic plate reconstructions, global plate motion reference frames, relationships between Large Igneous Provinces and plate tectonics, processes in the deep mantle and their relation to plate motions, and studies that integrates geological and geophysical data with advanced kinematic and dynamic models.
