About this book

This book provides an in-depth overview of the field of mantle dynamics in its present state. It surveys the physics and fluid dynamics of mantle convection, with theoretical, laboratory and computational methods. The volume also reviews the present understanding of convection in Earth's mantle, including energy sources and thermal evolution, upper-mantle flow, the fate of subducting slabs, hotspots and mantle plumes, and convective mixing and mantle geochemistry.
