Study of deep earth
Application of fluid dynamics in earth science.
My present work focuses on the interaction
between mantle convection and cratonic lithosphere.
Cratons (figure on the left) are the oldest part of the
earth still surviving today. Not only they are old, but they
have not experienced any significant deformation after
Precambrian (~540 million years before present). It is one of
the very fundamental questions to understand the reason for the
survival of cratons in tectonically active earth, where
everything other than these particular areas goes on recycling.
I simulate 3d spherical models by using CitcomS to observe the stress and strain patterns under the cratons. I also develop time-dependent forward modelling to observe how cratons have evolved with time.
