Relocation of the tectonic boundary between the Raukumara and Wairoa Domains (East Coast, North Island, New Zealand): implications of the rotation history of the Hikrangi margin

Rowan, Christopher J; Roberts, Andrew; Rait, G.J.


Paleomagnetic studies of Neogene marine sediments have documented large clockwise rotations of the Hikurangi margin (East Coast, North Island) during the Neogene, with the exception of the Raukumara Peninsula, which is unrotated with respect to the Australian plate. Immediately south of the Raukumara Peninsula, the Wairoa region has been rotated clockwise by 50-60°; the boundary between these domains is associated with a change in regional structural trends. However, a declination of 70 ± 14°...[Show more]
