Dear colleagues,

The deadline for abstract submission to the EGU 2018 is Jan 10 (next Wednesday) 13:00 CET.

We would like to remind you of the following session on mantle upwellings.

Session GD3.2/GMPV7.2/SM4.19/TS9.6: Causes and consequences of mantle upwellings

Session description:

Mantle upwellings are a significant component of the Earth’s convective system that can cause volcanism and anomalies in surface topography. They can rise from thermal boundary layers as hot “plumes”. Alternatively, they can be a rather passive response to upper-mantle flow, subduction, or rifting. Clearly, different mechanisms sustain mantle upwellings of various temperature, vigour and size, causing signals that are potentially expressed in geophysical data as well as geochemical signatures of related volcanism.

This session invites contributions that focus on mantle upwellings from geophysics, geochemistry, and modelling perspectives. Our aim is to bring together constraints from multiple disciplines to understand the origin and dynamics of mantle upwellings, as well as their potential to trigger mantle melting, create volcanism, generate ore deposits and build dynamic topography.

Solicited oral presentations by Claudia Adam (Kansas State University) and Mark Hoggard (University of Cambridge).

We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to this session using the following link: https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/KOh6C4QZ1RF9B2zpCOm9uq?domain=meetingorganizer.copernicus.org.

We hope to see you in Vienna!

Best regards,
