Extensional and vertical tectonics in the New Guinea islands: implications for island arc evolution

Lindley, Ian


The New Guinea islands region, Southwest Pacific, lies at the frontier of the Australian and Pacific plates and many morphotectonic features are typical of other Western Pacific island arcs. Field geological observations indicate current tectonic models are deficient in key aspects and, from a broader perspective, synthesis of these observations cautions the carte blanche application of plate tectonic theory in similar tectonic provinces. Models generally only account for the last 3.5 Myr...[Show more]
