[1] Changes of plate motion may have induced subduction initiation (SI), but the tectonic history of SI is different from one subduction zone to another. Izu-Bonin-Mariana (IBM) SI, accompanied by strong backarc spreading and voluminous eruption of Boninites, contrasts with the Aleutians which shows neither. Using finite element models, we explore visco-elasto-plastic parameters and driving boundary conditions for SI evolution. With an imposed velocity, we find three different evolutionary… CONTINUE READING
