By David Okaya,Tim Stern,Fred Davey

released via the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph sequence, quantity 175.

A Continental Plate Boundary
bargains in a single position the main entire, up to date wisdom for researchers and scholars to benefit in regards to the tectonics and plate dynamics of the Pacific-Australian continental plate boundary in South Island and in regards to the software of contemporary geological and geophysical equipment. It examines what occurs while convergence and translation happen at a plate boundary by means of

  • Describing the geological and geophysical signature of a continental rework fault;
  • Identifying the various vertical and lateral styles of deformation on the plate boundary;
  • Assessing an obvious seismicity hole at the plate boundary fault and fast-moving plate motions;
  • Comparing this plate boundary to different international convergent continental strike-slip plate boundaries;
  • Documenting the application of the double-sided, onshore-offshore seismic strategy for exploration of a slim continental island; and
  • Providing extra papers featuring formerly unpublished results.

This quantity will turn out valuable for seismologists, tectonophysicists, geodesists and potential-field geophysicists, geologists, geodynamicists, and scholars of the deformation of tectonic plates.
