ASPECT: Application to Problems in Long-Term Tectonics
While ASPECT was specifically designed to solve large-scale convection problems in the Earth’s mantle, the flexibility of its design permits examining solid Earth processes across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. Given this flexibility, a number of groups have begun applying ASPECT to long-term tectonic processes, such as subduction and continental extension, which require modeling both viscous and brittle behavior ... read full article.
