... that progressively filled up the basin. Obduction process ended with the gravity sliding of the oceanic mantle sheet, previously scalped from its mafic cover. This process is contemporaneous with the exhumation of the HP-LT units of Pouebo and Diahot. Gravity sliding was facilitated by the occurrence of a continuous...

... ). In the northern part of Grande Terre, three other younger units unconformably overlie the former ones: the Montagne Blanche, Diahot and Pouébo units ( Cluzel 2006 ; Cluzel et al. 2012 ; Audet 2008 ). The Koh–Chaîne Centrale unit corresponds to a part of the oceanic floor: Carboniferous ophiolites are topped...

... convergence, several thrust sheets were emplaced onto New Caledonia, including the basaltic Poya terrane along the southern coast, the high-pressure Pouebo terrane in the northeast, and the ophiolite nappe ( Fig. 1 ). The Poya terrane is interpreted as allochthonous material, such as seamounts, scraped off...
