Abstract Plate boundary deformation creates a south-easterly advancing, repetitive structural pattern in Canterbury dominated by the propagation of northeast-striking thrust assemblages. This pattern is regularly segmented by east-striking faults inherited from reactivated Cretaceous normal faults. The more evolved and deeply exposed structures in the foothills of north Canterbury provide insights into the tectonic processes of the blind structures now emerging from under the northern and… Expand
New insights into the tectonic inversion of North Canterbury and the regional structural context of the 2010–2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence, New Zealand
The 2010–2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence highlighted the existence of previously unknown active faults beneath the North Canterbury plains and Pegasus Bay, South Island, New Zealand. We provideExpand
Faulting and folding beneath the Canterbury Plains identified prior to the 2010 emergence of the Greendale Fault
Abstract Prior to the 2010–2011 earthquake sequence, several fault and fold structures were mapped beneath the Canterbury Plains using seismic reflection surveys and surface observations and depictedExpand

High-resolution relocation of aftershocks of the Mw 7.1 Darfield, New Zealand, earthquake and implications for fault activity
[1] Low-slip-rate regions often represent under-recognized hazards, and understanding the progression of seismicity when faults in such areas rupture will help us to better understand earthquakeExpand
