The Scotia Sea in the South Atlantic holds a prominent position in geodynamics, because it has been proposed as a potential outlet of asthenosphere from under the shrinking Pacific into the mantle beneath the opening Atlantic.

Here, we take a different approach by calculating presentday dynamic topography of the region in search for a systematic trend in dynamic topography decreasing from west to east in… CONTINUE READING
