    • 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 ...
    • Exploration of the canyon-incised continental margin of the northeastern United States reveals dynamic habitats and diverse communities 

      Quattrini, Andrea M.; Nizinski, Martha S.; Chaytor, Jason D.; Demopoulos, Amanda W. J.; Roark, E. Brendan; France, Scott C.; Moore, Jon A.; Heyl, Taylor; Auster, Peter J.; Kinlan, Brian; Ruppel, Carolyn D.; Elliott, Kelley P.; Kennedy, Brian R. C.; Lobecker, Elizabeth; Skarke, Adam; Shank, Timothy M. (Public Library of Science, 2015-10-28)
      The continental margin off the northeastern United States (NEUS) contains numerous, topographically complex features that increase habitat heterogeneity across the region. However, the majority of these rugged features ...
    • Extension in Mona Passage, Northeast Caribbean 

      Chaytor, Jason D.; ten Brink, Uri S. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-07-15)
      As shown by the recent Mw 7.0 Haiti earthquake, intra-arc deformation, which accompanies the subduction process, can present seismic and tsunami hazards to nearby islands. Spatially-limited diffuse tectonic deformation ...
    • 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 ...
    • Morphology of late Quaternary submarine landslides along the U.S. Atlantic continental margin 

      Twichell, David C.; Chaytor, Jason D.; ten Brink, Uri S.; Buczkowski, Brian (Elsevier B.V., 2009-02-21)
      The nearly complete coverage of the U.S. Atlantic continental slope and rise by multibeam bathymetry and backscatter imagery provides an opportunity to reevaluate the distribution of submarine landslides along the margin ...
    • 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 ...
