The term "United States", when used in the geographical sense, is the contiguous United States, the state of Alaska, the island state of Hawaii, the five insular territories of Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa, and minor outlying possessions. The United States shares land borders with Canada and Mexico and maritime borders with Russia, Cuba Area: Ranked 4th. Puerto Rico (Spanish for "Rich Port"), officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, lit. "Free Associated State of Puerto Rico") and briefly called Porto Rico, is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the northeast Caribbean Sea. An archipelago among the Greater Antilles, Puerto Rico includes the main island of Puerto Rico and Capital and largest city: San Juan, 18°27′N 66°6′W .

Geological Survey Open-File Report The modern insular shelf and slope of western Puerto Rico is characterized by reef carbonate and siliciclastic sedimentary environments controlled by the complex interplay of tectonic arching and faulting, vigorous erosion of the elevated island of Puerto Rico, fluvial incision and sedimentation pulses, reef growth, and rapid late Quaternary eustatic sea-level changes.

The Puerto Rico Trench is the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, with water depths exceeding 8, meters. Its depth is comparable to the deep trenches in the Pacific Ocean.

Trenches in the Pacific are located in places where one tectonic plate. This technology was applied to investigate the rocks and sediments in the Luquillo Mountains / El Yunque region of Puerto Rico. Initial testing of wet and dry sediments revealed that the machine records higher elemental concentrations in dry compared to wet sediments as it seems that the water molecules interfere with the X-ray beam on wet samples.

Field work in Puerto Rico was done from September 21 to Septemwith the team; and from September 25 to Septemwith both the United States Geological Surveys (USGS) Marine Geology Project Office in San Juan and the Puerto Rico Department of Natural Resources (PRDNR).
