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.

3-D subduction mantle flow

3-D subduction dynamics and mantle flow model animation showing the time evolution of oceanic plate subduction and resulting mantle flow.

Slab-gap dynamics

Sketch of an evolution of an opening and sinking slab gap during oceanic subduction and the resulting surrounding mantle flow.

Earth processes

A schematic highlighting some of the most relevant Earth processes.

Subduction seismic anisotropy

Illustration of constraints on subduction zone seismic anisotropy from a global compilation of shear-wave splitting measurements.
