Tectonic control on sediment accretion and subduction off south central Chile : Implications for coseismic rupture processes of the 1960 and 2010 megathrust earthquakes

[1] Based on a compilation of published and new seismic refraction and multichannel seismic reflection data along the south central Chile margin (33°–46°S), we study the processes of sediment accretion and subduction and their implications on megathrust seismicity. In terms of the frontal accretionary prism (FAP) size, the marine south central Chile fore… (More)
