Version of Record online: 7 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50375

Key Points

  • VP/VS ratio estimated for Aleutian lower crust from along-arc refraction line
  • Results indicate abundant clinopyroxenite, consistent with geochemistry
  • Alpha quartz is an important control on crustal velocities in arcs
