...E. J. Hill; S. L. Baldwin; G. S. Lister Abstract Metamorphic core complexes in the D'Entrecasteaux Islands are forming as a result of active extension at the western end of the Woodlark Basin spreading center. High-grade metamorphic rocks exist in the cores of gneissic domes, including eclogites...

We assess the spatial pattern and recent history of rock and surface uplift in the subaerial portion of the Woodlark Rift using stream profile analyses on the D'Entrecasteaux Islands and eastern Papuan Peninsula. Most stream profiles...

Quartzose tectonic highland tempers occur in sherds from the outer Banda arc, the Aru Islands in the Arafura Sea, the D'Entrecasteaux Islands of the Solomon Sea, and New Caledonia. Nonquartzose tectonic highland tempers derived from...
