    • Assessment of tsunami hazard to the U.S. Atlantic margin 

      ten Brink, Uri S.; Chaytor, Jason D.; Geist, Eric L.; Brothers, Daniel S.; Andrews, Brian D. (Elsevier, 2014-03-22)
      Tsunami hazard is a very low-probability, but potentially high-risk natural hazard, posing unique challenges to scientists and policy makers trying to mitigate its impacts. These challenges are illustrated in this assessment ...
    • Farallon slab detachment and deformation of the Magdalena Shelf, southern Baja California 

      Brothers, Daniel S.; Harding, Alistair J.; Gonzalez-Fernandez, Antonio; Holbrook, W. Steven; Kent, Graham M.; Driscoll, Neal W.; Fletcher, John M.; Lizarralde, Daniel; Umhoefer, Paul J.; Axen, Gary J. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-05-08)
      Subduction of the Farallon plate beneath northwestern Mexico stalled by ~12 Ma when the Pacific-Farallon spreading-ridge approached the subduction zone. Coupling between remnant slab and the overriding North American plate ...
    • Geomorphic characterization of the U.S. Atlantic continental margin 

      Brothers, Daniel S.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Andrews, Brian D.; Chaytor, Jason D. (Elsevier B.V., 2013-01-10)
      The increasing volume of multibeam bathymetry data collected along continental margins is providing new opportunities to study the feedbacks between sedimentary and oceanographic processes and seafloor morphology. Attempts ...
    • Seabed fluid expulsion along the upper slope and outer shelf of the U.S. Atlantic continental margin 

      Brothers, Daniel S.; Ruppel, Carolyn D.; Kluesner, J. W.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Chaytor, Jason D.; Hill, Jenna C.; Andrews, Brian D.; Flores, Claudia H. (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-01-08)
      Identifying the spatial distribution of seabed fluid expulsion features is crucial for understanding the substrate plumbing system of any continental margin. A 1100 km stretch of the U.S. Atlantic margin contains more than ...
