North Sepik region of Papua New Guinea: palaeomagnetic constraints on arc accretion and deformation

Klootwijk, Chris; Giddings, John; Pigram, Chris; Loxton, Charles; Davies, Hugh; Rogerson, Rick; Falvey, David

Description

Palaeomagnetic results from the Bewani-Torricelli Arc complex of the North Sepik region, Papua New Guinea, provide new information about latitudinal movement of the region relative to the Australian craton during the Cenozoic and about rotational deformation following accretion of the arc to the craton's northern margin. Thermal demagnetization of more than 200 samples (10 sites) from the Bliri Volcanics complex of Palaeocene to Early Miocene age and from Late Oligocene to Middle Miocene cover...[Show more]
