Spatial and temporal evolution of the subducting Pacific plate structure along the western Pacific margin

Miller, Meghan; Kennett, Brian; Toy, Virginia

Description

Tomographic images of the subducting Pacific plate beneath the Izu-Bonin-Mariana arc illustrate a progression of geometries from shallow dipping to vertical from north to south along the arc. Recent advances in technology and inversion techniques have improved resolution of slab structure beneath the western Pacific island arcs, but reasons for the variation in geometry and morphology are still poorly understood. By comparing high-resolution tomographic images of the western Pacific and updated...[Show more]
