Collaborative Research: Crustal Accretion and Mantle Processes Along the Subduction-Influenced Eastern Lau Spreading Center
DESCRIPTION: Ambient seismic noise will be recorded over the Eastern Lau Spreading Center for 13 months and then analyzed for ambient noise cross correlation tomography, body wave tomography, surface wave phase velocities, body wave attenuation, and shear wave splitting.
OUTCOMES: 51 OBSs were recovered and the recorded seismic ambient noise has been partially processed. 3-D numerical modeling of previous results from the EPR has been modeled. Two one-time publications.
