Abstract:

Our goal is to better understand the system that produces the oceanic crust. Because the seafloor is a product of this system we believe that fundamental insight can be gained through the study of seafloor topography and the spatial variation in its characteristics. Our project has focused on applying and further developing our techniques for analyzing seafloor topography and combining our techniques for seafloor characterization with other data sources e.g., seismicity and models.
