Dear Colleagues —

We invite abstract submissions to the 2021 AGU Fall Meeting session
titled *Interdisciplinary
studies of the lithosphere-asthenosphere system*.

This session will bring together researchers across disciplines with the
goal of synthesizing knowledge on the origin, state, and evolution of the
lithosphere-asthenosphere system. We welcome submissions that interrogate
the lithosphere-asthenosphere system using any methodology including but
not limited to geophysical imaging, geochemical modeling, mineral physics,
and geodynamic modeling. We especially welcome studies that integrate
multiple data types to jointly constrain the nature of the
lithosphere-asthenosphere system.

Best Regards,

T. Liu (UCSD), D. Blatter (UCSD), J. Russell (Brown U), and W. Shinevar
(WHOI)

DI010 - Interdisciplinary studies of the lithosphere-asthenosphere system

Submit an Abstract to this Session
<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm21/di/papers/index.cgi?sessionid=120755>

The lithosphere-asthenosphere system is fundamental to understanding plate
tectonics and the evolution of Earth. Significant advances in geophysical
imaging, petrology, rheology, and geodynamics in the past decade have
enabled interdisciplinary investigation of the lithosphere-asthenosphere
system beneath both continents and oceans in unprecedented detail. Yet,
fundamental aspects of the lithosphere-asthenosphere system still remain
uncertain, such as the nature and origin of the lithosphere-asthenosphere
boundary, the degree of coupling between the lithosphere and asthenosphere,
and the thermodynamic state of the upper mantle. We welcome contributions
that explore the structure, dynamics, and state of the
lithosphere-asthenosphere system across tectonic settings using
methodologies including but not limited to seismic and electromagnetic
imaging, geochemical modeling, mineral physics, and thermal-mechanical
modeling. Interdisciplinary studies that integrate observations across
disciplines to jointly constrain the nature of the
lithosphere-asthenosphere system are especially encouraged.
