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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Simplified modeling method to estimate lava flow part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. A numerical model that produces early predictions for the projected path of a lava flow was created. The two dimensional model is based on a generalized set of ...

Linking North Atlantic Oscillation and greenhouse gases part of SERC Web Resource Collection

An analysis using a dozen climate models suggests that the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) may intensify with further increases to greenhouse gas concentrations.

Anthropogenic gases lead to stratospheric cooling part of SERC Web Resource Collection

Climate simulations were compared to stratospheric temperature and circulation observations over the last two decades. It was found that decreases in man-made mid-atmosphere ozone and increases in ...

Methane increase warmed prehistoric Earth part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This study ran paleoclimate simulations of atmospheric chemistry to investigate the relationship between the release of frozen methane hydrates and Paleocene/Eocene warming. Model results indicate ...
