SSA Abstracts are due on January 24: We encourage submissions for the Technical Session: Structure and Geodynamics of the Caribbean Plate Boundaries The Caribbean plate (CAR) is unusual for a number of reasons. The region’s history includes numerous destructive large magnitude earthquakes and tsunamis. An intermediate sized plate (3.3x106 km2), CAR is surrounded on its north, east and south by the much larger American plates, but since much of CAR is a large igneous province (LIP), its bu... [more]

The Recent Earthquakes that Shocked Mexico in September 2017 Last September, Mexico experienced two large earthquakes that seriously affected the south and central parts of the country. Both earthquakes were intraslab normal-faulting ruptures within the oceanic Cocos plate. The first one (Mw=8.1) occurred on September 8 in the Tehuantepec Gulf, collapsing thousands of small to medium size buildings in several provinces around the epicentral area. Numerous aftershock sequences (or triggered... [more]
