Taupor volcanic zone (TVZ) is the currently active volcanic arc and back-arc basin of the Taupo-Hikurangi arc-trench system, North Island, New Zealand. The volcanic arc is best developed at the southern (Tongariro volcanic centre) end of the TVZ, while on the eastern side of the TVZ it is represented mainly by dacite volcanoes, and in the Bay of Plenty andesite/dacite volcanoes occur on either side of the Whakatane graben. The back-arc basin is best developed in the central part of the TVZ and… 
Caldera volcanism and rift structure in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, New Zealand
Abstract The Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ) is an active continental volcanic arc/back-arc basin in central North Island, New Zealand. It is the youngest area of volcanic activity that extends southwards
Taupo Volcanic Zone and Central Volcanic Region Backarc Structures of North Island, New Zealand
Volcanism in North Island, New Zealand, is related to subduction within the Taupo-Hikurangi arc-trench system. The central volcanic region (CVR) is a wedge-shaped basin, approximately 4 m.y. old,
Petrogenesis of High-K Arc Magmas: Evidence from Egmont Volcano, North Island, New Zealand
Egmont Volcano (Mt Taranaki) is located 140 km west of the INTRODUCTION Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ), the principal locus of volcanic activity Egmont Volcano is a 2518 m high stratovolcano (Mt in the
Extensional fault kinematics within the Taupo Volcanic Zone, New Zealand: Soft‐linked segmentation of a continental rift system
Abstract The Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ) is a young (<2 Ma) arc‐backarc system in continental crust at the southern end of the Havre Trough characterised by intense volcanism and geothermal activity.

Caldera Volcanoes of the Taupo Volcanic Zone, New Zealand
The Taupo volcanic zone (TVZ) has been active since 2 Ma and has erupted >104 km3 of dominantly rhyolitic magma during the last 1 m.y. Most of the volcanism is concentrated in a 125×60 km area

Intersection of a marginal basin with a continent: structure and sediments of the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
Summary West of the Kermadec Trench and Arc, the Havre Trough is an actively spreading, oceanic marginal basin. Bathymetric, magnetic and seismic data indicate that it terminates against the lower
