  Information - TS8.4/GD06.1/GMPV16 Structure and Dynamics of Mid-Ocean Ridges (co-organized by GD & GMPV)

Event Information
Mid-ocean ridges represent a unique window on mantle processes. After several decades of efforts from the marine geosciences community, many aspects are still debated, including mantle circulation and melting, melt migration and cooling, lower crustal accretion, magmatic or amagmatic extension, evolution of oceanic core complexes, melt distribution and mantle outcropping at ultra-slow ridges, interaction of various scales of mantle convection near hotspots ...etc. The session with bring together scientists from a large variety of disciplines, to compare and review observables and models of the structure and dynamics of mid-ocean ridges and associated mantle sources and circulation.
