Comparative geomorphology of two active tectonic structures, near Oxford, North Canterbury
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2004)
The North Canterbury tectonic setting involves the southward propagating margin of easterly strike-slip activity intersecting earlier thrust activity propagating east from the Alpine Fault. The resulting tectonics contain ...
Modelling Submarine Landscape Evolution in Response to Subduction Processes, Northern Hikurangi Margin, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2010)
The steep forearc slope along the northern sector of the obliquely convergent Hikurangi subduction zone is characteristic of non-accretionary and tectonically eroding continental margins, with reduced sediment supply in ...
Basin Analysis of the Porter Group, Castle Hill Basin, Canterbury: Implications for Oligocene Tectonics in New Zealand.
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2003)
A basin analysis of the Oligocene Porter Group rocks in Castle Hill Basin, Canterbury, was completed. The Porter Group contains the Coleridge Formation which comprises a lower sandstone unit and an upper micritic limestone ...
Continental Extensional Tectonics - The Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex of Westland, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2007)
Cretaceous continental extension was accommodated by the development of the Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex, resulting in the separation of New Zealand from Gondwana. High grade (Lower Plate) and low grade (Upper Plate) ...
