Subduction Initiation Dynamics along a Transform Fault Control Trench Curvature and Ophiolite Ages Understanding how new subduction zones form is essential for complete articulation of plate tectonic theory. Formation of new subduction zones by collapse of oceanic transform faults or fracture zones is suggested on the ...
Eruption of South Sarigan Seamount, Northern Mariana Islands: Insights into Hazards from Submarine Volcanic Eruptions (Oceanography Society, 2014-06)The eruption of South Sarigan Seamount in the southern Mariana arc in May 2010 is a reminder of how little we know about the hazards associated with submarine explosive eruptions or how to predict these types of eruptions. ...
