Gravity anomalies, flexure and mantle rheology seaward of circum-Pacific trenches

Abstract:

We have used ensemble averages of satellite-derived free-air gravity anomaly data, together with inverse modelling techniques, to determine the effective elastic thickness, Te, of circum- Pacific subducting oceanic lithosphere and its relationship to plate age. Synthetic modelling tests show that Te can be recovered best using gravity anomaly, rather than bathymetry, data and profiles that are at least 750 km long. Inverse modelling based on a uniform Te elastic plate suggests that Te increas...
