  • 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 ...
  • Duration and severity of Medieval drought in the Lake Tahoe Basin 

    Kleppe, J. A.; Brothers, Daniel S.; Kent, Graham M.; Biondi, F.; Jensen, S.; Driscoll, Neal W. (Elsevier B.V., 2001-09-16)
    Droughts in the western U.S. in the past 200 years are small compared to several megadroughts that occurred during Medieval times. We reconstruct duration and magnitude of extreme droughts in the northern Sierra Nevada ...
  • 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 ...
