  • Crameri, Fabio; Lithgow-Bertelloni, Carolina (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / SubmittedVersion, 2017)
    The sinking remnant of a surface plate crosses and interacts with multiple boundaries in Earth's interior. Here, we specifically investigate the prominent dynamic interaction of the sinking plate portion with the upper-mantle ...
  • Crameri, Fabio; Lithgow-Bertelloni, Carolina; Tackley, Paul J. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The long-wavelength surface deflection of Earth's outermost rocky shell is mainly controlled by large-scale dynamic processes like isostasy or mantle flow. The largest topographic amplitudes are therefore observed at plate ...
  • Grima, Antoniette Greta; Lithgow-Bertelloni, Carolina; Crameri, Fabio (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Slab orphaning is a newly discovered phenomenological behavior, where the slab tip breaks off at the top of the lower mantle (~660 km depth) and is abandoned by its parent slab. Upon orphaning, subduction continues ...
  • Crameri, Fabio; Conrad, Clinton Phillips; Montési, Laurent; Lithgow-Bertelloni, Carolina (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / SubmittedVersion, 2018)
    As the Earth's primary mode of planetary cooling, the oceanic plate is created at mid-ocean ridges, transported across the planet's surface, and destroyed at subduction zones. The evolution of its buoyancy and rheology ...
