Sea-level change mechanisms (sketch)

Sketches outlining the solid-Earth induced change of sea level over different time periods, covering elastic, viscous, and mantle convection time scales.

Earth interior model

Simplified model of the Earth’s interior and its global dynamics featuring a solid inner and a fluid outer core, a viscous partially molten but not fluid mantle, and characteristic surface topography.

Planetary interior

Comparison of suggested mantle convection in the Earth (mobile-lid mode) and Venus (inefficient short slab mode).

Earth processes

A schematic highlighting some of the most relevant Earth processes.

Slab tearing

Time-evolution of subduction slab break-off shown in a global spherical 3-D model.
