Alaska and Aleutian Primary Site

The Alaska and Aleutian Subduction Zone (AASZ) has been identified as high priority because its study can address a wide variety of questions outlined within the SCD science plan, addressing both ocean-continent and ocean-ocean subduction. The AASZ also offers important opportunities to leverage EarthScope activities, including the Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO), and proposed future deployment of the US Transportable Array, and also a long record of USGS work in the area. GeoPRISMS investigations in Alaska face some logistical challenges, and so will require a ramp-up period and significant advance planning.
