In a detailed Seabeam investigation of the East Pacific Rise (EPR) from 8°N to 18°N, a new kind of volcano-tectonic geometry associated with fast-spreading centres has been discovered (Figs 1, 2). At several locations along the rise axis the neovolcanic zone is discontinuous, and is laterally offset a short distance (1–15 km). In contrast to a classic ridge–transform–ridge plate boundary, however, the offset ridge terminations overlap each other by a distance approximately equal to or greater… Expand
