Short summary
We propose a new method to reconstruct the circulation in the Earth's mantle for the last 300 Myr. This method is based on the sequential assimilation of plate layouts obtained from plate tectonic reconstructions into mantle convection models. This method allows us to take into account uncertainties in plate tectonic reconstructions, and provides an estimation of the uncertainties in the final result. We test and validate this method in a controlled environment by using synthetic experiments.
