2  =  (P ressure, T emperature, C omposition, M ineralogy ) H = H (P ressure, T emperature, C omposition, M ineralogy ) Gibbs free energy minimization (Gerya et al., 2001, 2004, Connolly & Petrini, 2002, Vasiliev et al., 2004)

3  Cp(DT/Dt) =  (k  T/  x)/  x +  (k  T/  z)/  z + Qp + Q shear + Q radioactive Qp = (DP/Dt)[1-  (  H/  P) T ]Cp = (  H/  T) P Latent heating is implemented via effective heat capacity ( Cp ) and effective adiabatic heating ( Qp ) computed numerically from the enthalpy and density maps Lagrangian temperature equation standard thermodynamic relations D(ln  )/Dt + div(v) = 0 Lagrangian continuity equation for compressible flow Volumetric effects of phase transformations are taken into account in both the momentum and the continuity equations

4 дP/дx = (P 2 -P 1 )/  x P 1 P 2 xx Finite differences T Combination of finite-differences, on staggered grid, and marker-in-cell technique Method of numerical solution original 2-D and 3-D single- & multi-processor C-codes I2, I3, I2VIS, I2ELVIS, I2IOMP, I3MG (Gerya et al., 2000; Gerya & Yuen, 2003) Marker technique Staggered grid

5 The software fit advances in hardware technology - Work stations: n  10 4 nodes, n  10 7 markers Supercomputers: n  10 7 nodes, n  markers in visualization technology - ultra-high spatial resolution for very large numerical models The software accounts for variable tectonic environment phase transformations visco-elasto-plastic rheology erosion/sedimentation processes 10 Accretion wedge km Subducting plate Sea water Air ALL-IN-ONE TOOLBOX
