CRUSTAL STRUCTURE, FLEXURE, AND SUBSIDENCE HISTORY OF THE HAWAIIAN-ISLANDS

Abstract:

Seismic reflection profile data have been used to estimate the long-term (>106yr) mechanical properties of the oceanic lithosphere underlying the Hawaiian Islands. The data show prominent reflectors associated with the top of the oceanic crust (reflectors 2), the M discontinuity, and the base of the crust (reflector 3). The two-way travel time to the reflectors has been depth converted using velocity depth functions derived from seismic refraction expanding spread profile data and compared...
