05-MAR-2-C12 Convergent Margin and Intra-Plate Processes

Representative: Wolfgang Bach

Content

Geodynamics, focusing on the origin and consequences of mantle plumes and plate subduction. Using rock compositions as a guide to geodynamic cycling. Using geophysical methods in assessing plate cooling and subduction.

Learning Outcome

Accomplishing an advanced understanding of intra-plate and convergent margin processes, including seafloor subsidence, mantle plume dynamics, plate flexure, and subduction zone magmatic and geophysical processes. Ability to assess mass transfers between principle Earth reservoirs.
