Deep Earth Dynamics

Deep Earth Dynamics studies the chemical, physical, and geochemical state of the lower mantle and core in the context of Earth's system evolution. Research projects at USC include studies of the variability of the magnetic field as generated by the geodynamo, seismological and geodynamic analysis of thermo-chemical heterogeneity distributions, and detection of deep mantle plumes.
