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 suffered
any significant deformation after Precambrian time
(~590 million years before present). It is one of the
very fundamental questions for geodynamists to understand
the reason of survival of cratons in tectonically active
earth, where everything other than these particular areas
go on recycling.
I simulate 3d spherical models by using CitcomS to observe the stress and strain patterns under the cratons. This could be very efficient to understand the reason of cratonic stability.
