The southern Alaskan margin captures a transition between compression and strike-slip dominated deformation, accretion of the over-thickened Yakutat terrane, termination of Aleutian arc magmatism and the enigmatic Wrangell Volcanic Field. The extent of subduction and mantle structure below this region is uncertain, with important implications for volcanism. We present compressional- and shear-wave mantle velocity models below south-central Alaska that leverage a new seismometer deployment to… CONTINUE READING
