Dear Colleagues,

The American Geophysical Union Annual Meeting
<https://www.agu.org/Fall-Meeting> returns for fall 2022 both in-person in
Chicago, IL and virtually from December 12th – 16th, 2022. We invite you to
please consider submitting your abstract to our session, *DI008.
Constraining the Thermal Structure in the Upper Mantle with
Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Multiple Datasets*, and joining us
either in-person or virtually in December. We hope to host a vibrant
session where we'll learn of various approaches of investigating processes
contributing to the evolution of the upper mantle. We also encourage and
would appreciate you forwarding this opportunity to potentially interested
fellow scientists.  *The deadline for abstract submission is August 3*.

*Session description:*
Constraining the Thermal Structure in the Upper Mantle with
Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Multiple Datasets (link to session:
https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm22/prelim.cgi/Session/162176)

The thermal evolution of the oceanic upper mantle has long been explored
with seismic tomographic methods such as those that use surface wave phase
velocities, surface wave shear velocities, and body wave travel times.
Ambient seismic noise datasets have been proven to significantly improve
the resolution of source-derived seismic images of oceanic lithosphere,
allowing us to put important constraints on physical properties of the
mantle. To complement information obtained from seismological methods,
other methods such as petrology, geochemistry, and geophysical modeling
must be considered. In this session, we invite contributions from
geophysical methods, geodynamic modeling, geochemistry, and
multidisciplinary approaches, to provide a comprehensive picture of
processes in the upper mantle and advance our understanding of the
evolution of oceanic upper mantle.

We look forward to learning more about your work in December!
