Abstract

The BERING project is a new large project lead by the GEOMAR institution in Kiel and focused on marine and on-land investigations in Kamchatka, the Kurile and Aleutian Arcs, the Bering Sea, and the NW-Pacific. BERING is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research with contributions from Russian and U.S. institutions. The overarching goal of BERING is to elucidate the magmatic and tectonic evolution of the Bering Sea and its margins over the past ≥50 m.y. In particular, BERING investigates the physical and chemical conditions that control the development of subduction zones, including subduction initiation, evolution of mature arc systems, and the impact of subduction volcanism on the environment. To achieve this goal BERING will address the following major scientific questions in four major directions of study..............
