The building of North America: evidence from seismology

The Earth’s geology was sculpted by processes that have long ceased. Gathering geological evidence preserved deep within tectonic plates in ancient regions is essential to improving our understanding of the early Earth. As that can be difficult to achieve by traditional field geology, seismology is increasingly being employed. Seismic networks are now deployed in regions of tectonic interest to detect distant earthquakes. The seismograms provide a record not only of the earthquake but also the deep-Earth geology encountered by the seismic waves. Because southeastern Canada is home to rocks that span more than 3 billion years of Earth history, it is an excellent place to explore how tectonic processes have developed over geological time. This project will use seismology to unravel how North America was assembled and to discover how the very thick plate developed beneath the heart of it.
