CSDMS 2023: Patterns and Processes Across Scales

Coupling models of lithospheric deformation and surface processes with the Advanced Solver for Problems in Earth's Convection and Tectonics (ASPECT)

It is well established that coupling and strong feedbacks may occur between solid Earth deformation and surface processes across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. As both systems on their own encapsulate highly complex and nonlinear processes, fully-coupled simulations require advanced numerical techniques and a flexible platform to explore a multitude of scenarios. Here, we will demonstrate how the Advanced Solver for Problems in Earth's Convection and Tectonics (ASPECT) can be coupled with FastScape to examine feedbacks between lithospheric deformation and landscape evolution. The clinic will cover the fundamental equations being solved, how to design coupled simulations in ASPECT, and examples of coupled continental extension and landscape evolution.
