Abstract

The highly active subduction zone of southern Chile was the source region of the 1960 Valdivia megathrust earthquake (Mw= 9.5), the largest earthquake ever recorded. This region is currently under investigation by the multidisciplinary TIPTEQ (From the Incoming Plate to Mega-Thrust Earthquake Processes) project, which is studying the structure, state, and deformation of the subduction zone lithosphere.
