Seismic anisotropy in northwestern Canada and eastern Alaska from shear wave splitting measurements
MetadataShow full item record
The Mackenzie Mountains are an actively uplifting and seismogenic mountain range that lies within the Yukon and Northwest Territories, Canada. The range is an eastward salient of the complexly deformed northern Canadian Cordillera, and lies ~500 kilometers away from and significantly off axis of the convergence direction of the Yakutat Indentor, a small oceanic-continental terrane that is subducting northward under North America in the Gulf of Alaska. To better assess the causes of the Mackenzie Mountains uplift and its broader relationship to deformation within the Northern Canadian Cordillera, ...
