dc.description.abstractNicaragua is the largest country in Central America and has a rich geologic history related to gold exploration and mining dating back to the 16th century. More recent geologic interest in Nicaragua stems from its plate tectonic setting that consists of active subduction of the Cocos plate beneath the Caribbean plate along its western margin. Active volcanoes of the Central American Volcanic arc are a result of this subduction. The purpose of this study was to complete a transect across an active volcanic arc and investigate geologic aspects of the arc in concert with the cultural, societal and economic impacts of living in a tectonically active region.en
