[CIG-ALL] 2019 IUGG - JA01 - GEOPHYSICAL CONSTRAINTS ON THE EARTH'S CORE AND ITS RELATION TO THE MANTLE (IAGA, IASPEI, IAG)


#1

Dear CIG List,

This is a final invitation to consider submitting an abstract to IUGG session JA01 (http://iugg2019montreal.com/ja.html). Abstracts can be submitted up to February 18th.

JA01 - GEOPHYSICAL CONSTRAINTS ON THE EARTH’S CORE AND ITS RELATION TO THE MANTLE (IAGA, IASPEI, IAG)

Description

This symposium seeks contributions covering from core to mantle, including observations, material properties, structure and dynamics. In the mantle, composition, rheology, density, electric and magnetic properties are required to define the dynamical evolutionary path through space-time. The recent satellite missions GRACE, GOCE and SWARM, and novel teleseismic methods give new insights into deep Earth physical properties and state. Models of mantle convection and the interaction with lithospheric plates and subducted relics use these data as input to define the models in greater detail. Geodetic and seismic data provide inputs necessary for constraining possible stable layers in the outer core, with high resolution models of the geomagnetic field required to make further progress in our understanding of core dynamics and dynamo generation. Seismology and mineral physics continue to work in tandem to further our understanding of inner core structure and dynamics. We also welcome studies concerning global-scale coupling, including the dynamical interaction between the inner, outer core, the mantle and earth rotation.

Note too that we will be informally celebrating the life and achievements of Geophysicist Doug Smylie, who passed away in 2018.

We look forward to seeing you there. —Jon

Conveners: Jon Aurnou (USA, IAG), Michael Bergman (USA, IAG), Carla Braitenberg (Italy, IAG), George Helffrich (Japan, IASPEI), Tine Thomas (Germany, IASPEI)
