The material of the course contents will present the mathematical concepts as less as possible unless they are essential to understand the physical principles. They will cover basic elasticity and fluid mechanics involved in the studies of the bending of elastic plates, the heat transfer through conduction at thermal boundary layers and mantle convection, the two-phase porous flow applied in partial melting and magma generation, etc. 課程內容： (1) Plate kinematics Plate motion on a sphere, relative plate motion, absolute plate motion. (2) Elasticity and plate flexure stresss and strain, bending or flexure of plates under applied moments and vertical loads, application to the earth’s lithosphere under the loads of island chains, at an ocean trench an sedimentary basins. (3) Heat transfer Fourier’s law of heat conduction, the earth’s surface heat flux, cooling of the oceanic lithosphere, solidification of dikes, thermal stress, subsidence of seafloor topography and sedimentary basins. (4) Fluid mechanics Consevation of mass, momentum and energy, the stream function, 1-D channel flow, postglacial rebound, stoke’s flow, thermal convection, boundary layer theory, linear stability analysis, the forces that drive mantle convection. (5) Flow in porous media Darcy’s law, permeability models, porous flow model for melt migration, two-phase convection. 二、先修課程:Calculus, Freshman Physics 三、參考書目: Dynamic earth: plates, plumes and mantle convection by Geoffrey Davies,Cambridge University Press, 1999.Geodynamics: Applications of continuum physics to geological problems by D.L Turcotte and G.
