Scherwath, M. and Flueh, E. and Grevemeyer, I. and Tilmann, F. J. and Contreras-Reyes, E. and Weinrebe, W. (2006) Investigating subduction zone processes in Chile. Eos, 87 (27). 265ff. DOI 10.1029/2006EO270001Full text not available from this repository.
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.
