Scope of theme:
Evolution and Dynamics of the Deep Earth is a theme that covers the geochemistry, petrology, and mineralogy of the Earth's deep mantle and core, in terms of processes and properties, from 4.56 Ga ago to present times. The scientific sessions cover these aspects from the points of view of experimentation, modelling, and observation of deep processes and properties, albeit through their shallow expression. We offer sessions ranging from the origin and evolution of Earth’s core and primitive mantle, to the redox state and evolution of the deep mantle, the volatile cycle and budget in the deep Earth (with a special focus on carbon and the noble gases), the fate of subducting slabs, and the state-of-the-art in terms of the physical and chemical properties of mantle and core rocks and minerals (phases transitions, transport properties).
