Expedition result
The expedition involves drilling and coring of subduction inputs and heat flow measurements to better understand geophysical properties driving large subduction earthquakes at the margin of the Philippine Sea Plate which subducts beneath the Eurasian Plate. Subduction input consists of basaltic basement and sediment accumulated on it before an oceanic plate subducts underneath a continental plate.
