Tectonics and Earth ResourcesSlab breakoff: insights from 3D thermo-mechanical analogue modelling experiments

  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0040195116304735 The detachment or breakoff of subducted lithosphere is investigated using scaled three-dimensional thermo-mechanical analogue experiments in which forces are measured and deformation is monitored using high-speed particle imaging velocimetry (PIV). The experiments demonstrate that the convergence rate in […]
