Absolute motion and evolution of the Bouvet triple junction

Abstract

The absolute motion of the Bouvet triple junction has an important role in its mechanical evolution. At present, the relative velocity vectors of the South American, African and Antarctic plates form an obtuse isosceles triangle, and both the ridge–ridge–ridge (RRR) and ridge–transform–transform (RFF) configurations of the Bouvet are potentially stable… (More)
