The Cascadia Margin Revealed

Suzanne Carbotte’s keynote lecture will focus on new research being conducted in Cascadia. She will shine a light on recent active source surveys of the Juan de Fuca plate and Cascadia margin and the new scientific insights that these data provide. Carbotte uses seismic imaging techniques to study the magmatic processes of ocean crust formation at the global Mid-Ocean Ridge, the evolution of oceanic crust as it is transported across the plate interiors, and changes in the structure of oceanic crust as it begins to into Earth’s mantle at subduction zones.

Her research includes studies at the East Pacific Rise, the Axial Seamount on-axis hotspot volcano and the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Recorded Tuesday, 19 April 2022 at the Seismological Society of America’s 2022 Annual Meeting.
