running title

  • Deep Time Modelling of Carbon Flux at Subduction Zones 


  • This toolbox documents the workflows and contains the open-source python, pyGPlates and BASH codes that was produced over the course of the deep carbon modelling project. The purpose of the workflows presented here are to: (a) quantify the length of subduction zones; (b) analyse the interaction of carbonate platforms with subduction zones; (c) qualify subduction zone volcanism as being either intra-oceanic or continental arcs; and (d) quantify the carbon dioxide content of oceanic crust, all in a deep-time evolving plate tectonic framework.
