  The subduction model for trench-arc-back arc systems was deduced more or less as a logical consequence of sea-floor spreading. Many features in these systems, such as thrust-type inter-plate earthquakes and deep earthquakes along Wadati-Benioff zones, are readily explained by the subduction ://   Subduction zones are where sediments, oceanic crust, and mantle lithosphere return to and reequilibrate with Earth’s mantle.

At its heart, “Subduction” is all about stories — the stories that constitute personal, family and cultural identity and, perhaps more important here, the stories David W.

Subduction zones consume oceanic lithosphere and are an indispensible part of plate tectonics. Unlike the oceanic lithosphere production system which can be linked as a nearly continuous, albeit sinuo Fluids play a critical role in subduction zones and arc magmatism. At shallow levels in subduction zones ( Subduction zone, oceanic trench area marginal to a continent in which, according to the theory of plate tectonics, older and denser seafloor underthrusts the continental mass, dragging downward into the Earth’s upper mantle the accumulated trench sediments.
