Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate volcanic rocks in Panama (17-115 Ma) to understand the long-term evolution of the Galápagos hotspot, the input into the Panamanian subduction zone and the tectonic interplay with the Central American landbridge. The second focus of this study was the subduction output along the Panamanian subduction zone over the last 65 Ma. Furthermore the growth, paleotectonic and geochemical evolution of the Panamanian island arc.
