Two-dimensional convection with a self-lubricating , simple-damage rheology

Abstract

S U M M A R Y We present 2-D simulations of convection in the Earth’s mantle with temperature and damagedependent viscosity in a basally heated system. The equation governing the temporal evolution of damage includes a source term for damage, a healing term and an advection term. A systematic study of the influence of the different damage terms on the… (More)
