UE Internal geodynamics

Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :


This course deals with internal geodynamics using a deterministic approach based on basic principles of physics. Subjects covered in this course include the rheology and heat transfers within the mantle and lithosphere, the convection in the mantle and core and the generation of the Earth main magnetic field in the core. For each of these subjects, problems are solved using different approaches: analytical solution in simplistic cases, information provided by observations, use of numerical simulations and experimental studies.
