Plate motions and subducting slab morphology are intricately connected, and through the integration of seismicity, tomographic images, and relative plate motions, the evolution of mantle structure can be interpreted. Tomographic images of P wave, shear wave speed, and bulk sound speed perturbations of the northwest Pacific region have been interpreted to define the extent and geometry of the subducting Pacific plate. We have found that the subducted Pacific plate beneath the Japan and Kurile...[Show more]
