Subduction Cycles & Deformation

The GeoPRISMS SCD Initiative will address coupled processes active at subducting margins and explore linkages among them, spanning the updip limits of the accretionary wedge and incoming plate, to the deep mantle and plate boundary interface, and associated cycling of fluids and volatiles, their role in rheology, melting, and magmatism and ultimately, arc processes that lead to the growth of continental crust. This new initiative formalizes the strong linkages between SEIZE and SubFac recognized during MARGINS and will facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge within the subduction zone community, enabling transformative discoveries of this highly coupled system.
