Abstract:
New Zealand lies on the plate boundary zone between the obliquely converging Australian and Pacific Plates. The aim of this thesis is to study how plate motion has been accommodated in the Marlborough Fault Zone (MFZ), in the northern South Island. This fault system links subduction at the Hikurangi margin to the north with continental transpression on the Alpine Fault to the south.
