Dear Colleagues,


Here are three virtual explorations of Wadati-Benioff zone geometry for the Alaska subduction zone (Jadamec et al., Earth and Space Science, 2018). Zooming into the Earth starts at about 30 seconds into the movies.

In addition, here are two virtual voyages through the laterally variable Pacific and North American plate thermal structure designed for 3D geodynamic modeling of the region, based on a synthesis of observations.
