Unit Affiliation: Seismology, Geology and Tectonophysics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)
The team compared recent seismic imaging results from the Nicaragua-Costa Rica subduction zone with the Marinanas. Also re-revaluating and comparing laboratory measurements of physical properties at relevant conditions.
OUTCOMES: Presented first year results at the Fall 2011 AGU meeting, held an all-day "Q Summit", and demonstrated that seismic attenuation (1/Q) measurements are closely tied to thermal structure.
