Mantle structure and geotectonics



Recent results of geophysical, geological and petrological research regarding the structure and composition of the Earth's mantle and possible interrelations with geotectonic processes was the focus of an interdisciplinary symposium, Mantle Structure and Geotectonics, held October 12, 1989, in Fribourg, Switzerland, as part of the Annual Meeting of the Swiss Academy of Natural Sciences. The symposium was organized by the Swiss Geophysical Society, the Swiss Geological Society and the Swiss Mineralogical and Petrographical Society.
