We would like to draw your attention to the session GD2.3- Thermochemical imaging of the mantle: from observables to modelling at the EGU General Assembly 2020 in Vienna and hope that you will consider submitting an abstract to this session. The abstract submission deadline is 15 Jan 2020 .
The thermochemical structure of Earth mantle is key information to better understand its dynamics and its evolution in time. In the last 20 years, several approaches were suggested from seismological observations, experimental geophysics, and computational geochemistry to improve our understanding of the thermochemical structure beneath cratonic areas, subduction zones or mantle upwellings. The development of high-performance computational infrastructures (HPCI) and new algorithms to manage the processing of big data brings new opportunities to produce high-resolution images and a better understanding of mantle dynamics. This session wishes to bring together contributions from experimental geophysics and computational geochemistry to large scale geodynamics, which is aimed at imaging and modelling thermochemical structure on different time scales. Presentations of new methods combining multiple observations of geophysical and geochemical datasets with regional to global geophysical modelling are particularly encouraged .”
