Abstract:

Support is requested for the collection, processing, and interpretation of marine geophysical data multibeam bathymetry, sonar images, magnetic and seismic reflection profiles on a 1200 km-long traverse of the East Pacific Rise. Objectives were to characterize the changing roughness of the oceanic crust as it ages from 0 to 10 Ma on both flanks and accumulates sediments, and to study the different geologic histories of the two flanks which have affected their relief and structure, and the pattern and structure of the present plate boundary.
