[1] Abstract: We present revised compilations of bathymetry, magnetization, acoustic imagery, and seismicity data for the Lau Basin and surrounds. We interpret these data to more precisely locate the plate boundaries in the region and to derive a three-plate kinematic model for the opening of the Lau Basin during the Brunhes Chron. Our tectonic model includes the Niuafo'ou microplate, which is separated from the Australian Plate along the Peggy Ridge-Lau Extensional Transform Zone-Central Lau… CONTINUE READING
