[1] The O’Higgins Seamount Group is a cluster of volcanic domes located 120 km west of the central Chilean Trench on the crest of the Juan Fernández Ridge. This aseismic hot spot track is subducting under South America triggering a belt of intraslab earthquake hypocenters extending about 700 km inland. The Juan Fernández Ridge marks the southern boundary of a shallow subduction segment. Subduction of oceanic basement relief has been suggested as a cause for the ‘‘flat’’ slab segments… CONTINUE READING
