Papua New Guinea Highlands: palaeomagnetic constraints on terrane tectonics
Oblique convergence since the Early Cenozoic between the northward-moving Australian plate, westward-moving Pacific plate and almost stationary Eurasian plate has created a world-ranking tectonic zone in the eastern Indonesia-New Guinea- Southwest Pacific region (Tonga-Sulawesi megashear) that is notorious for its complex mix of tectonic styles and terrane juxtapositions. Unlike an ancient analog - the Mesozoic-Cenozoic Cordillera of North America - palaeomagnetic constraints on terrane motions...[Show more]
