Imaging changes in morphology, geometry, and physical properties of the subducting Pacific plate along the Izu-Bonin-Mariana arc

Miller, Meghan; Kennett, Brian; Lister, Gordon


Recent studies on slab structure in the northwest Pacific have imaged variable geometries of the subducted oceanic lithosphere along the plate margin. Tomographic images show portions of the subducted Pacific plate penetrate vertically into the lower mantle below the Mariana arc, whereas below the Izu-Bonin arc, the slab appears to be lain down horizontally on top of the 670-km discontinuity. Using new technology to grid and visualize regional seismic tomography data even more detail about the...[Show more]
