Widespread remagnetizations and a new view of Neogene tectoic rotations within the Australia-Pacific plate boundary zone, New Zealand

Rowan, Christopher J; Roberts, Andrew


Large, clockwise, vertical axis tectonic rotations of the Hikurangi margin, East Coast, New Zealand, have been inferred over both geological and contemporary timescales, from paleomagnetic and geodetic data, respectively. Previous interpretations of paleomagnetic data have laterally divided the margin into independently rotating domains; this is not a feature of the short-term velocity field, and it is also difficult to reconcile with the large-scale boundary forces driving the rotation.
