Figure F1. Bathymetric map of Middle America Trench, showing location of proposed drilling area. Note the collision of Cocos Ridge with trench in Osa Peninsula area, a process that brings the seismogenic zone within reach of IODP riser drilling capabilities. Elevation data compiled from Smith and Sandwell. DSDP = Deep Sea Drilling Project, ODP = Ocean Drilling Program.
