How to use subduction in a sentence?

  1. Van Hinsbergen:

    Subduction, the plunging of one plate under the other, is the basic way in which mountain chains are formed, our research provided a large number of insights, also about volcanism and earthquakes, that we are already applying elsewhere. You can even predict, to a certain extent, what a given area will look like in the far future.

  2. Research Professor Suzanne Carbotte:

    Because the fault zone is so quiet seismically, we really don’t have a good picture of where the part of the fault that generates the big earthquakes is located. At other subduction zones, there are many small earthquakes recorded along the megathrust fault that scientists can use to locate the fault and study its properties, but not at Cascadia.
