Lianxing Wen -> Research -> Geodynamics -> Plate Motions
Comparison of observed and predicted divergence and vorticity of the Earth
surface. The observed divergence and vorticity are obtained from plate tectonic
model of Gordon and Jurdy and the predicted divergence and vorticity are
obtained by convection model with continental regions having 60 times higher
viscosity than oceainc regions. Contour intervals: 1.e-8 rad/yr.
The viscosity structure of the Earth. Reference viscosity is 1.6e21 Pa s.
