Seismic Project Information VANC02MV
TicoFlux II

This 2002 R/V Melville cruise, which collected 4-channel MCS data, was part of a multidisciplinary investigation of the thermal state of the subducting lithosphere offshore of the Costa Rica margin. Its companion cruise, Ticoflux I, was on board the R/V Maurice Ewing in 2001 (EW0104). The goals were to determine the comparative thermal state of the subducting lithosphere in these regions, the associated heat and fluid fluxes responsible for the subducting slab thermal states, and how these variables affect subduction zone processes, including chemical flux rates.
