Seismic Project Information MGL1211
Cascadia Subduction Zone
This 2012 R/V Langseth survey collected MCS data and OBS data along 3 transects of the Juan de Fuca plate, offshore Washington state to the Endeavour Ridge, offshore Oregon to Axial Volcano, and along the Cascadia trench ~ 100 km offshore. The study was designed to test the hypothesis that the Juan de Fuca plate is significantly hydrated prior to subduction at the Cascadia trench.
