Introduction to numerical geodynamic modelling [2nd ed.]

By: Gerya, Taras.
Publisher: Cambridge Cambridge University Press 2019Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xiii, 471p.ISBN: 9781107143142.Subject(s): Geophysics | Mathematical modelsDDC classification: 550.15118 | G329i2 Summary: Numerical modelling of geodynamic processes was predominantly the domain of high-level mathematicians experienced in numerical and computational techniques. Now, for the first time, students and new researchers in the Earth Sciences can learn the basic theory and applications from a single, accessible reference text. Assuming only minimal prerequisite mathematical training (simple linear algebra and derivatives) the author provides a solid grounding in basic mathematical theory and techniques, including continuum mechanics and partial differential equations, before introducing key numerical and modelling methods. 8 well-documented, state-of–the-art visco-elasto-plastic, 2-D models are then presented, which allow robust modelling of key dynamic processes such as subduction, lithospheric extension, collision, slab break-off, intrusion emplacement, mantle convection and planetary core formation.
