Mantle and outer shell structure, dynamics and evolution in the Earth and other planetary bodies [incorporating Division Outstanding Young Scientist Award Lecture - JC Afonso] (co-sponsored by AGU-SEDI) (co-organized)
Convener: Paul Tackley  | Co-Conveners: J. Huw Davies , Christine Thomas , Stephanie C. Werner , Doris Breuer , Susanne Buiter 
 / Tue, 09 Apr, 08:30–12:00  / Room G9
 / Tue, 09 Apr, 13:30–17:00  / Room PICO Spot 2

This session welcomes contributions that address the structure, dynamics and evolution of the mantle, and its interaction with the outer shells of the Earth and other planetary bodies, on temporal scales ranging from the present day to billions of years, and on spatial scales from kilometers to global.

Contributions may use one or more approaches including seismology, geodynamical modelling, satellite observation, geodesy, geochemistry, mineral physics and petrology; multidisciplinary studies are particularly encouraged.
