Boundary Beneath Continents

Deflab Workshop attendees

ESF Exploratory Workshop

3-5 June 2009

Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies
10 Burlington Road, Dublin 4

The lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary (LAB) is the most extensive plate boundary on the planet, and, although it is an active plate boundary, beneath the continents it is relatively cryptic compared to other first-order structural subdivisions of the Earth. This workshop will bring together geophysicists, geochemists, petrologists and mineral physicists to focus on this boundary and its definition using the various proxies that exist.

The objectives of the workshop are:
