Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the session GD 6.2:

Anisotropy from crust to core: Observations, models and implications
(co-organized <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/r54YCmO5gluj7nL9lfGAF5c?domain=meetingorganizer.copernicus.org>

at the upcoming EGU General Assembly (3-8 April, 2022).
Please consider submitting an abstract to this session.

Important dates:
- Deadline for abstract submission: 12 January 2022, 13:00 CET

*Session description:*
Many regions of the Earth, from crust to core, exhibit anisotropic fabrics
which can reveal much about geodynamic processes in the subsurface. These
fabrics can exist at a variety of scales, from crystallographic
orientations to regional structure alignments. In the past few decades, a
tremendous body of multidisciplinary research has been dedicated to
characterizing anisotropy in the solid Earth and understanding its
geodynamical implications. This has included work in fields such as: (1)
geophysics, to make in situ observations and construct models of
anisotropic properties at a range of depths; (2) mineral physics, to
explain the cause of some of these observations; and (3) numerical
modelling, to relate the inferred fabrics to regional stress and flow
regimes and, thus, geodynamic processes in the Earth. The study of
anisotropy in the Solid Earth encompasses topics so diverse that it often
appears fragmented according to regions of interest, e.g., the upper or
lower crust, oceanic lithosphere, continental lithosphere, cratons,
subduction zones, D'', or the inner core. The aim of this session is to
bring together scientists working on different aspects of anisotropy to
provide a comprehensive overview of the field. We encourage contributions
from all disciplines of the earth sciences (including mineral physics,
seismology, magnetotellurics, geodynamic modelling) focused on anisotropy
at all scales and depths within the Earth.
