We will model subduction zones - places where the ocean floor dives into the Earth's deep interior - to understand the balance of forces acting among shallow mantle flow, the dynamically evolving subducting slab in the deep mantle, and the deforming over-riding plate. The outcome will be a suite of dynamic regional subduction models based on regional data which can be used as the basis for more detailed simulation by the geological community.
