Abstract

Recent work on the North Fiji Basin axial spreading ridge and on the active propagating ridge located west of the Fiji Islands has established the existence of two active spreading ridges that have been functioning synchronously in the basin since at least 1 or 1.5 Ma. This hypothesis is tested and the kinematics of the twin active ridges are refined further on the basis of analysis of bathymetric and magnetic data.
