Flexure and rheology of Pacific oceanic lithosphere

Abstract:

The idea of a rigid lithosphere that supports loads through flexural isostasy was first postulated in the late 19th century. Since then, there has been much effort to investigate the spatial and temporal variation of the lithosphere’s flexural rigidity, and to understand how these variations are linked to its rheology. In this thesis, flexural modelling is used to first re-assess the variation in the rigidity of oceanic lithosphere with its age at the time of loading, and then to constrain...
