Apr 11, 2019 The migration of modern volcanic arcs has been demonstrated by geophysical methods to be controlled by mantle convection patterns. It is hypothesized that like an inverted sail, subducted oceanic slabs “blow in the mantle wind.” However, identifying geologic data supporting the long term and widespread migration patterns has remained elusive.

Geologists have hypothesized that the movement of tectonic plates is related to convection currents in the earth’s mantle. C onvection currents describe the rising, spread, and sinking of gas, liquid, or molten material caused by the application of heat. An example of convection current is shown in Fig. 7.16.

Introduction. Evidence that the Earth’s mantle circulates is well documented, yet the influence of deep-seated mantle plumes, some possibly originating at the core-mantle boundary, is still hotly contested (e.g., Anderson, 2003; Foulger Natland, 2003).Areas of elevated topography linked to magmatism greater than normal in the ocean basins have been historically attributed to …

Jan 08, 2022 As mantle convection rises, it breaks apart the Earth to form mid-oceanic ridges (tensional force). When it sinks down, it breaks it apart (compressional force). These tensional and compressional forces are what drives plate tectonics. They break apart the whole lithosphere into 7 major plate tectonics and 12 or so minor ones.

The Earth's mantle convects to lose heat (Holmes, 1931); doing so drives plate tectonics (Turcotte and Oxburgh, 1967). Significant gravitational energy is created by the cooling of oceanic lithosphere atop hotter, less dense mantle. When slabs subduct, this gravitational energy is mostly (~86% for whole mantle flow in a PREM-like mantle) transformed into heat …
