Of how planetary interiors shape their outer surfaces

Start Date
End Date


Professor Carolina Lithgow-Bertelloni will show in her talk how the interior of the Earth (and other terrestrial planets) is extremely dynamic, giving rise to large changes in topography that can even control biogeographic dispersal. She will compare Earth to other planets and spend a few minutes covering the data and modelling techniques used to study Earth's and other planetary interiors.

Carolina Lithgow-Bertelloni a professor of Geophysics at UCL with broad interests in solid Earth geodynamics and tectonics. She uses both computational and laboratory methods and she is deeply grounded in observations. Prior to her arrival at UCL in 2007 she was an associate professor with tenure at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
