Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


International Conference on Geophysics of Slab Dynamics;Jeju Island, South Korea, 19-22 August 2012 In a recent meeting on Jeju Island, South Korea, a community of researchers, half from East Asia and half from North America and Europe, came together to study subduction from complementary points of viewseismology, geodynamics, mineral physics, and tectonicsto enhance the synergy between subduction-related disciplines. The discussion focused on the predictability of the largest earthquakes, the origin of the interplate volcanism in Asia, the challenges for numerical modelers, and how the subduction process influences the evolution of the mantle.
