The concept of 3D Earth – A Dynamic Living Planet (Ref. Haagmans (2014))

The goal of 3D-Earth is to establish a global 3D reference model of the crust and upper mantle based on the analysis of satellite gravity e.g. GOCE and (electro-)magnetic missions e.g. Swarm in combination with seismological models and analyse the feedback between processes in Earth’s deep mantle and the lithosphere. Selected case examples will provide the possibility to test these approaches on a global and regional scale. This will result in a framework for consistent models that will be used to link the crust and upper mantle to the dynamic mantle.
