Tectonic and climatic influence on the evolution of the Surveyor Fan and Channel system, Gulf of Alaska
Present-day seafl oor morphology and sediment distribution in the deep-water Surveyor Fan, Gulf of Alaska, is dominated by the >700-km-long Surveyor Channel, an anomaly in a system with no major flExpand

The protection and management of the Sargasso Sea: The golden floating rainforest of the Atlantic Ocean: Summary Science and Supporting Evidence Case
The Sargasso Sea is a fundamentally important part of the world’s ocean, located within the North Atlantic sub-tropical gyre with its boundaries defined by the surrounding currents. It is the onlyExpand

Evolution of the Nankai Trough décollement from the trench into the seismogenic zone: Inferences from three-dimensional seismic reflection imaging
We mapped the amplitude of the Nankai Trough subduction thrust seismic reflection from the trench into the seismogenic zone with three-dimensional seismic reflection data. The decollement thrustExpand

Quaternary tectonic response to intensified glacial erosion in an orogenic wedge
Active orogens are thought to behave as internally deforming critical-taper wedges that are in rough long-term equilibrium with tectonic influx and erosional outflux. Spatial and temporal variationsExpand

Coupled stratigraphic and structural evolution of a glaciated orogenic wedge, offshore St. Elias orogen, Alaska
[1] The St. Elias orogen is the result of ∼10 Myr of oblique convergence and flat-slab subduction in the Gulf of Alaska between North America and the Yakutat microplate. Extensive glaciation and aExpand

Geophysical insights into the Transition fault debate: Propagating strike slip in response to stalling Yakutat block subduction in the Gulf of Alaska
On the basis of faulting mapped on seismic reflection and bathymetric data, seismicity, current plate motions, and evidence that the Yakutat block may be anomalously thick, we propose a tectonicExpand

Seismic structure of the southern Cascadia subduction zone and accretionary prism north of the Mendocino triple junction
Four multichannel-seismic reflection profiles, collected as part of the Mendocino triple junction seismic experiment, image the toe of the southern Cascadia accretionary prism. Today, 250–600 m ofExpand

Contrasting Décollement and Prism Properties over the Sumatra 2004–2005 Earthquake Rupture Boundary
Quake Control Large earthquakes occur at the margins of two colliding plates, where one plate subducts beneath the other at a shallow angle. These megathrust earthquakes often cause destructiveExpand

[1] Geophysical data indicate that the 65.5 million years ago Chicxulub impact structure is a multi-ring basin, with three sets of semicontinuous, arcuate ring faults and a topographic peak ringExpand

Seamount subduction erosion in the Nankai Trough and its potential impact on the seismogenic zone
Seamount subduction along subduction-zone plate boundary thrusts has long been implicated as a mechanism for abrasion and tectonic erosion of the base of the overriding plate. However, tectonicExpand
