FDSN Network Information

FDSN code YB (2016-2016) Operated by Texas A&M University
Network name Evolution of Slow-Spreading Oceanic Crust: South Atlantic (CREST) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 4, 2016 End date Feb. 25, 2016
Short description

A geophysical survey to characterize the fundamental structure and evolution of slow-spread oceanic crust with age, and the age range for oceanic crust layers to reach mature velocities. This survey will be the most comprehensive study of oceanic crust at any spreading rate (across a 70 myr age range) and will serve as a foundation for comparison to similar studies of intermediate and fast spreading crust. Additionally, this will serve as a site survey for a proposed IODP drilling transect (853-Pre), which has already been favorably reviewed by the IODP Science Evaluation Panel.
