2014 ASPECT: Science Highlights

Category: Webinars
Description:

ASPECT Team

ASPECT, the Advanced Solver for Problems in Earth's ConvecTion, is a finite element code to simulate problems in thermal convection in both 2D and 3D models primarily focused on simulating processes in the earth's mantle. The code is built on modern numerical methods incorporating adaptive mesh refinement and linear and nonlinear solvers. This webinar highlights the current scientific problems being tackled by the team of scientists-developers who contribute to this open source community code.

  • Introduction, Timo Heister, Clemson University
  • True polar wander in convecting planets, Ian Rose, UC Berkeley
  • Kinematic subduction zones with nonlinear Rheology in ASPECT, Katrina Arredondo, UC Davis
  • Implications of vertical and lateral viscosity variations of the mantle-lithosphere system in the Western Branch of the East African Rift, Sarah Stamps, MIT
  • Geodynamic modeling of eclogite-bearing mantle plumes using ASPECT, Juliane Dannberg, GFZ
