MR019:
Physics and Chemistry of Earth’s Deep Mantle and Core





Session ID#: 24888

Session Description:
Recent geophysical observations have revealed that the Earth’s deep lower mantle and core are more complex than previously thought. Geodynamical and geochemical studies have extensively explored the dynamic evolution of the Earth’s silicate mantle and metallic core through the geological time. Physical and chemical properties of materials are fundamental information for interpretation of the observations and for constructing robust models.

In this session, we focus on the physics and chemistry of the Earth’s deep mantle and core to better understanding the current nature and dynamic processes of the Earth’s interior. This session seeks to attract contributions from both experimental and theoretical/computational mineral physics studies of deep Earth materials. Topics include, but are not limited to, phase relations, thermodynamics, elasticity, EOS, crystal chemistry, transport and rheological properties. We also welcome contributions from seismology, geodynamics, and geochemistry to provide a unified view of deep Earth that could guide research in mineral physics.
