Magmatic response to the evolving New Zealand Margin of Gondwana during the Mid-Late Cretaceous
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2003)
The Mount Somers Volcanic Group (MSVG) and Mandamus Igneous Complex (MIC) are the magmatic manifestations of the transition from convergence to extension at the Gondwana margin, which culminated in the separation of New ...
Kinematics of the Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex, West Coast, South Island, New Zealand.
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2011)
The Paparoa Metamorphic Core Complex developed in the Mid-Cretaceous due to continental extension conditioning the crust for the eventual breakup of the Gondwana Pacific Margin, which separated Australia and New Zealand. ...
Insights into New Zealand Glacial Processes from studies of glacial geomorphology and sedimentology in Rakaia and other South Island Valleys
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2010)
This thesis investigates the assertion by many early and more recent New Zealand glacial workers, that the high catchment rainfall and low seasonality in New Zealand create unique glacial sedimentary and geomorphic processes. ...
Paraglacial Rockslope Stability
(University of Canterbury. Department of Geological Sciences, 2012)
The aim of this research was to study the relationship between rock slope stability and glacial processes. An in-depth analysis of our current understanding of how glaciated rock slopes develop instability and movement ...
Experimental Investigation of Gouges and Cataclasites, Alpine Fault, New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2013)
The upper 8-12 km of the Alpine Fault, South Island, New Zealand, accommodates relative Australia-Pacific plate boundary motion through coseismic slip accompanying large-magnitude earthquakes. Earthquakes occur due to ...
