The CMB (core-mantle boundary) is the most significant boundary of properties and processes within the Earth – in some respects, even more significant that Earth’s surface. It provides a challenging and exciting array of structures and processes that must be studied through synthesis of many areas of geophysics. These include the highly seismically heterogeneous D” region in the mantle, and the impact of its structure and topography on core processes, a posited stably stratified layer at the top of the core, with important implications for geomagnetic secular variation and the Earth’s dynamo, Earth rotation coupling between the solid and fluid deep Earth, and composition and properties of the material both above and below the boundary.

This meeting is designed to bring together workers in all of these areas (and more) under the UKSEDI (UK Study of the Earth’s Deep Interior) umbrella. We welcome talk proposals that fit in with this framework, particularly those which explore interactions or implications for more than one discipline, and will try to cover as broad a range of disciplines as possible. A poster session will be provided (if the meeting takes place remotely using the Gathertown environment) which will also welcome submissions on other areas of deep Earth geophysics (from core to at least mantle transition zone) from presenters who would benefit from discussions with the broader SEDI community.

The meeting will take place remotely online. Please submit requests for talks and posters by email to Richard Holme (holme@liv.ac.uk).
