A multidisciplinary perspective on the dynamic processes occurring in Earth's mantle

The convective motion of material in Earth's mantle, powered by heat from the deep interior of our planet, drives plate tectonics at the surface, generating earthquakes and volcanic activity. It shapes our familiar surface landscapes, and also stabilizes the oceans and atmosphere on geologic timescales.

Mantle Convection and Surface Expressions brings together perspectives from observational geophysics, numerical modelling, geochemistry, and mineral physics to build a holistic picture of the deep Earth. It explores the dynamic processes occurring in the mantle as well as the associated heat and material cycles.

Volume highlights include:
* Perspectives from different scientific disciplines with an emphasis on exploring synergies
* Current state of the mantle, its physical properties, compositional structure, and dynamic evolution
* Transport of heat and material through the mantle as constrained by geophysical observations, geochemical data and geodynamic model predictions
* Surface expressions of mantle dynamics and its control on planetary evolution and habitability

The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals.
