Abstract
We performed a parametric study at different structural levels of factors influencing the dynamics of delamination by peeling of the lithospheric mantle by using laboratory models. The adopted set-up consists of a three-layers visco-elastic body (analogue for upper crust, lower crust, lithospheric mantle) locally thickened/thinned to simulate a lithospheric root and an adjacent weak zone, lying on a low viscosity material simulating the upper mantle. Each experiment is monitored using high-resolution cameras positioned in the lateral and top views. We focus our attention on the quantification of the mantle circulation pattern and the evolution of surface topography realized using Feature Tracking and a 3D laser scanner, respectively.
