Abstract

Description

During 1977 and again in 1978 the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (formerly Geophysics Laboratory, Marine Science Institute) collected multifold seismic reflection data off the west coast of Costa Rica. The purpose of this report is to 1) present the seismic data, 2) describe briefly the main structural and geologic features observed on the lines, and 3) discuss briefly how these observations fit into the overall geologic and tectonic setting and evolution of the Costa Rica-Middle America Trench forearc area.
