Plate-driven mantle dynamics and global patterns of mid-ocean ridge bathymetry

Abstract:

Global observations of mid-ocean ridge (MOR) bathymetry reveal a correlation between the difference in axial depth across ridge offsets and ridge migration. If upwelling and melt production rates are asymmetric across a ridge axis, three-dimensional (3-D) melt focusing and different crustal thickness across offsets may account for the observed differences in axial depth. In this article we use a 3-D numerical model to constrain the flow and thermal structure of a ridge-transform-ridge plate b...
