Description The Puerto Rico trench is a tectonic plate boundary where the North American plate slides by and descends under the Caribbean plate. Although much of the trench lies within the U.S. EEZ, surprisingly few surveys have been conducted there during the past 25 years. This data set shows the tracklines (navigation path) of the U.S. Geological Survey science cruise that was conducted in the year 2002.
