Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands occupy a km-long and km-wide segment of the seismically active North America–Caribbean plate boundary zone. Geologic and seismological information on both onland and offshore plate boundary faults are critical for understanding the earthquake and tsunami hazards that these structures pose to a.

The Puerto Rico Trench: Implications for Plate Tectonics and Earthquake and Tsunami Hazards. Uri ten Brink, Chief Scientist U.S. Geological Survey. The Puerto Rico Trench is the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, with water depths exceeding 8, meters (figure 1). Its depth is comparable to the deep trenches in the Pacific Ocean.

Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are located at an active plate boundary between the North American plate and the northeast corner of the Caribbean plate. The region was subject in historical times to large magnitude earthquakes and devastating tsunamis. A major downward tilt of the sea floor north of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, large submarine rockslides, and an unusually large.

Introduction: We present results of a new probabilistic seismic hazard assessment for Puerto Rico and the U. Virgin Islands (PRVI). The study area (Fig. 1) is located along the boundary between the northeastern Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, at the intersection of the Greater and Lesser Antilles Island chains.

These islands demarcate the boundary between the North American and. Evaluate local, regional, national, and global seismic networks and equipment, and their role in a tsunami warning system.

Virgin Islands. Advocate enforcement of existing building codes. The probabilistic methodology developed by the U.S. Geological Survey is applied to a new seismic hazard assessment for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Modeled seismic sources include gridded historical seismicity, subduction-interface and strike-slip faults with known slip rates, and two broad zones of crustal extension with seismicity rates constrained by GPS geodesy.

USGS-Volcano: United States Geological Survey Volcano Hazards Program, USA. Mission. The Puerto Rico Seismic Network (PRSN) is the regional authority for monitoring earthquakes and tsunamis in the Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. It was set up in by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) for the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA).

The Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands (PRVI) are located within the complex plate boundary zone between the North American and Caribbean plates. This region faces multiple natural hazards, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, hurricanes, and flooding.

The islands are part of the Greater Antilles island chain, which is one of the earliest places that employed Global Positioning System Cited by: 9.

The earthquake of Janu - as most of the destructive earthquakes in Haiti in the past - occurred on the segment, or rather on an offset segment, of the EPGFZE which is associated mostly with shallow earthquakes having left-lateral strike slips.

Active Tectonics and Seismic Hazards of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Offshore. Puerto Rico is bounded on the south by the Muertos Trough, on the west by the Mona Canyon, and on the east by the Virgin Islands Basin (Figure 1).

The Muertos Trough is an elongated basin developed where the Earth’s crust to the south of Puerto Rico is thrust under the Muertos fold-and-thrust belt, which lies to the south of the island.
