Special Seminar – Dr Phil Heron

Special Seminar for 2016-2017 Earth Sciences Seminar Series

Speaker:  Dr. Phil Heron, Dept of Earth Sciences, U of T

Title: Exploring Plate Tectonic Theory: Role of the Mantle Lithosphere

Abstract:
In this talk, I will outline the recent surge of studies relating to the
role of the mantle lithosphere in tectonic processes. Using geological
interpretations alongside computational geodynamic modelling, our
own research on the subject represents a potentially major revision
to the fundamental idea of plate tectonics. We show that deep
hidden lithospheric scars in contiental interiors can
activate large-scale tectonic deformation and orogenesis.
