Author in the following contribution(s)
Diagnostics of thin sheet deformation: matching gradients in strain-rates to gradients in GPE, and faulting response. Case studies: Tibet, Aegean and Indian Ocean.
Scaling of areal extent of deformation to dimensions of boundaries and to n (England, Houseman, and Sonder, 1985), plus dependence on Ar. Exercises on simple boundary-driven deformation problems using basic solutions. Dependence on the Argand number, Ar, and the exponent n.
Rayleigh-Taylor instability, effects of non-Newtonian viscosity. Derivation of the dependence of growth rate on n.
Examples using sybil to examine the time dependence of growth: exponential for n = 1, and super-exponential with n > 1 Scaling of growth rate to n.
