Geosphere, April 2012, v. 8, p. 491-506, doi:10.1130/GES00758.1, Model 3 - Our third model involves the eastward relative migration of the tear point at a faster rate than the westward absolute movement of the Pacific plate over the hotspot, resulting in eastward absolute movement of the tear point and absolute velocity vectors for material in the slab that are steeper than the slab dip. See text for details. See also Figure 19. This zip file contains the KML file for Supplemental Model 3.
