Penrose conference on lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary


  • Anonymous


A Penrose Conference on The Lithosphere-Asthenosphere Boundary will be convened by Thomas H. Jordan and William S. Fyfe at Vail, Colorado, in mid-November 1975. The tentative dates are November 16 to 21.

Many definitions of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary exist on the basis of various geodetic, seismological, penological, and rheological data or phenomena. This ambiguity has resulted in confusion and misinterpretation of the part of students of earth dynamics.
