AbstractNEPTUNE is a plan to deploy a long-term fiber-optic observatory on the seafloor of the Juan de Fuca plate. The network will support a wide range of scientific observations including a regional broadband seismic network and multidisciplinary experiments to study hydrothermal activity on the Juan de Fuca ridge and its flanks. Such observations will contribute to our understanding of the hydration of oceanic lithosphere and improve seismic images of the Cascadia subduction zone. In the long term, NEPTUNE will contribute to a better understanding of the mechanism of intraslab earthquakes.
