Around 30 km beneath our feet lies the Earth’s mantle, a 2,900 km thick layer of rock that makes up the majority of the mass of our planet. While solid for the most part, the Earth’s mantle is able flow on geological time scales by thermally-activated creep processes. One obvious manifestation of this flow is the large-scale motion of the tectonic plates at the surface; but there are also smaller and deeper scales of mantle flow that are much harder to observe. In this talk I will show how state-of-the-art geophysical observations and models are leading to new insights into the mysterious dynamics of the Earth’s deep interior.
