Nature of crustal terranes and the Moho in northern Costa Rica from receiver function analysis
The Central American subduction zone in northern Costa Rica shows along‐strike variations in both the incoming and overriding plates. By analyzing the subducting oceanic Moho (M1) and the upper plate Moho (M2) with receiver ...
Seismic anisotropy in southern Costa Rica confirms upper mantle flow from the Pacific to the Caribbean
Surrounded by subducting slabs and continental keels, the upper mantle of the Pacific is largely prevented from mixing with surrounding areas. One possible outlet is beneath the southern part of the Central American isthmus, ...
A recent tear in subducting plate explains seismicity and upper mantle structure of southern Costa Rica
Past studies of southern Costa Rica have generated a multitude of tectonic scenarios to account for different data sets. Flat slabs, detached slabs, and slab windows have been proposed to address the uplift of the Cordillera ...
