... of the Hawaiian Islands is exceptionally thin and has been deformed. In the eastern Pacific the Revillagigedo Islands and isolated Clipperton Island lack extensive aprons, and the Galapagos apron is thin. Seismic refraction measurements show that volcanic rocks are kilometers thick in the vicinity of all islands...

...Leslie J. Sonder; Robert A. Pockalny Abstract Abyssal hills within 20 km of the Clipperton and Pitman transforms deviate from regional trends by as much as 15°–20°. We use a thin viscous sheet model with power-law rheology to test the hypothesis that these anomalous trends result from distributed...

... Nova-Canton Trough effectively disprove a spreading-center origin of this feature. Free-air gravity anomalies derived from satellite altimetry data show continuity, across the Line Islands, of the Nova-Canton Trough with the Clipperton Fracture Zone. The Canton-Clipperton trend is copolar, about a pole...

The igneous-tectonic sequence is outlined as follows: A prototectonic phase started with the formation of a volcanic island arc during Jurassic or Early Cretaceous time, resulting in a complex association of igneous...

... and Eurasian plates meets the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, is a rare site to investigate these relationships. The distinct tectono-magmatic features of Faial make it the ideal island to focus the study. Here, we analyze the relationships between tectonics and magmatism, using remote-sensing, field, and paleomagnetic...

... spreading is taking place in the Tethyan belt, lateral movements have been—and are—restricted to mantle movements and the overlying lithosphere has been detached from the mantle. Ocean-basin studies show that island-arc trench fills, where “subduction” supposedly takes place, are undeformed. The volumes...

...Günter Suhr; Peter A. Cawood Abstract The Lewis Hills massif (Bay of Islands Ophiolite, Newfoundland) preserves a deeply eroded transform fault. A major, low-angle, extensional mylonite zone is next to the transform assemblage and probably merges laterally into it. The mylonite developed in a high...

We constructed a continuous, monthly resolved, spliced fossil Porites coral δ 18 O and Sr/Ca record from Misima Island, Papua New Guinea, in the Western Pacific Warm Pool, spanning 233 yr (1411–1644 CE [Common Era]). The Misima coral record indicates that the surface ocean...
