Published via the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 88.

This quantity specializes in the volcanic, fluid, sedimentary, and tectonic methods taking place within the trencharc-backarc structures of the western Pacific—a ordinary neighborhood concentration for stories of those issues. the result of ocean drilling and linked website surveys within the western Pacific have introduced basic adjustments to our figuring out of volcanism, crustal deformation, fluid move, and sedimentation in energetic margins and marginal basins. Our target this is to synthesize the result of ocean drilling in a multi-disciplinary demeanour, together with a comparability of the findings from drilling legs having related subject matters, and to stress the importance of those effects to the wider geoscience community.
