What we want to find out
Here’s how high-performance computing will enable us to use known data together with models to better understand our planet.
- Are the main drivers of plate motion negative buoyancy forces or convective shear traction?
- What is the energy dissipation in plate bending zones? How strong is plate coupling?
- We endeavor to learn more about the Earth’s structure and history.
- The role of slab or subducted plate geometries is yet to be understood.
