New insights into the present-day kinematics of the central and western Papua New Guinea from GPS.

Koulali, Achraf; Tregoning, Paul; McClusky, Simon; Stanaway, R; Wallace, L; Lister, Gordon


New Guinea is a region characterized by rapid oblique convergence between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates. The detailed tectonics of the region, including the partitioning of relative block motions and fault slip rates within this complex boundary plate boundary zone are still not well understood. In this study, we quantify the distribution of the deformation throughout the central and western parts of Papua New Guinea (PNG) using 20 yr of GPS data (1993–2014). We use an elastic...[Show more]
