Global strength and elastic thickness of the lithosphere

Publication year: 2011 Source: Global and Planetary Change, Available online 27 December 2011 Magdala Tesauro, Mikhail K. Kaban, Sierd A.P.L. Cloetingh The strength and effective elastic thickness (Te) of the lithosphere control its response to tectonic and surface processes. Here, we present the first global strength and effective elastic thickness maps, which are determined using physical properties from recent crustal and lithospheric models
