Mantle Convection part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This page discusses thermal convection as it applies to the Earth's mantle and includes three QuickTime movies for three different cases of convection: heating from below, heating from within, and a ...

Thermal Structure from Models of Mantle Convection with Surface Plates, Temperature-dependent and Radially Stratified Viscosity part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This animation shows the evolution of thermal structure within the mantle over a period of about 4 transit times (equivalent to ~200 Ma). The scale of thermal structure is controlled by surface ...

Farallon Plate Remnants part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This image and short video from the NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio shows the remnants of the Farallon Plate based on seismic tomography studies. The studies were conducted by Hans-Peter Bunge ...

Visualization of 3D Mantle Data part of SERC Web Resource Collection

A series of simulations from the Yuen Research group of the Minnesota Supercomputer Institute at the University of Minnesota. There are three animations showing models of temperature and velocity ...

Magnetic Reversal video part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This mpeg video shows the output of a magnetic field model during which a magnetic reversal occurs. The model is superimposed on a stationary Earth to highlight the field changes that would be ...

Numerical dynamo models part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This page from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology explains current research modeling geomagnetic processes, including magnetic reversals and secular variation. Includes three supporting ...

Thermal evolution and mantel convection part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This page from the DLR Institute of Planetary Research provides some background on thermal convection as well as links to some 2D and 3D animations of mantle convection.

Mantle Convection Models in the GEON IDV part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This page about the GEON Integrated Data Viewer examines its use in visualizing mantle convection. There are also links to six animations of convection that were created using IDV with different ...

Geodynamo part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This page from UC-Santa Cruz gives a description of the Earth's geomagnetic history, with several modeled images of the Earth's magnetic field. Included is a link to a PBS Nova animation of a ...

Magma shakes up earthquake locations part of SERC Web Resource Collection

Numerical models were employed to examine the relationships between the orientation of volcanotectonic faults and magma movement. It was found that the direction of movement on strike-slip faults ...
