Abstract Incorporating coupled Thermal-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical (THMC) processes in lithospheric deformation models is a research frontier in the study of lithosphere dynamics. In this study we present a fundamental theoretical analysis on the important lithosphere deformation mechanism of creep enhanced by fluid-release reactions. This mechanism features a surprisingly rich dynamics stemming from the feedback between deformation induced fluid release through mineral breakdown reactions… CONTINUE READING
