Scope Various tectonic processes occur on the seaward side of the trench associated with bending of the incoming oceanic plate, e.g., fracturing of oceanic crust, infiltration of water, and intraplate volcanism. Investigation of these processes and their influence on the incoming plate provides important information on the boundary condition at the trench, inputs to subduction zones. We welcome contributions from a broad range of earth science (geophysics, geology, petrology, and so on) discussing topics related to inputs to subduction zones such as occurrence of tectonic processes due to bending of the incoming plate, modification of the incoming plate by the processes, relationship between the processes and the inherited structure of the incoming plate, and influence of the processes on the subduction plate interface.
