|Abstract:||New data collected between the northernmost tip of the East Pacific rise (18°05´N, 105°35´W) and the Middle America trench provide evidence that the seafloor, which lacks significant sedimentary cover, has a typical spreading-derived abyssal hill topography. The tectonic fabric of this seafloor is concave to the west, as it is today at the tip of the East Pacific rise. Farther to the east, at the outer wall of the trench, the seafloor topography exhibits a north-south trending fabric. We suggest that this fabric originated along the East Pacific rise, as it reached the trench and possibly subducted beneath the North America plate prior to the development of the complex connection of the East Pacific rise with the Rivera transform|
