    Christian creationism (Martin Luther) was popular at the time, and the age of the Earth was thought to have been created circa 4 BC. There were stacks of calcareous rocks of maritime origin above sea level, and up and down motions were allowed (geosyncline hypothesis, James Hall and James D. Dana).Later on, the thrust fault concept appeared, and a contracting Earth . Aphanes arvensis L. was originally recorded from New Zealand (locality not stated) by Hooker ( ) as Alchemilla arvensis Sm., and later by the same author (A: 57) as collected by Travers from Tarndale Plains, South Island (as Alchemilla (Aphanes) arvensis L.) Bentham ( ) refers to the occurrence of the plant in New Zealand.

    Tens of thousands of landslides were generated o km 2 of North Canterbury and Marlborough as a consequence of the 14 November , M w Kaikōura Earthquake. The most intense landslide damage was concentrated in km 2 around the areas of fault rupture. Given the sparsely populated area affected by landslides, only a few homes were impacted . Figure 7 shows a geological cross-section of part of the Amadeus Basin from north to south. The Heavitree Quartzite is the earliest sedimentary formation deposited in the basin, being the basal unit deposited over the unassigned crystalline basement.

    Tuatara aims to stimulate and widen interest in the natural sciences in New Zealand, by publishing articles which (a), review recent advances of broad interest; or (b), give clear, illustrated, and readily understood keys to the identification of New Zealand plants and animals; or (c), relate New Zealand biological problems to a broader Pacific or Southern Hemisphere . During the war years of he was called up for military service and joined a group, made up of scientists, coast watching on Campbell Island, an uninhabited and rather rugged outpost in the South Pacific belonging to New Zealand. Here he spent his off duty hours exploring and mapping the island's geology.

New Zealand has an area ofkm 2 and comprises two major islands—North Island (, km 2 or 44, sq mi) and South Island (, km 2 or 58, sq mi) separated by Cook Strait, 20 km wide—and outlying islands. Stewart Island, the largest ( sq mi) of the outlying islands, is composed of granites and metamorphics; the Chatham Islands ( sq mi).

A long narrow trough covered the present Northland, Auckland, and Taranaki areas of the North Island and extended towards the Nelson region in the South Island (Grindley, b).

The western margin of the trough, which lay very close to, but beyond, the present western coast line of New Zealand, marked the eastern margin of the geanticline. The central part of the South Island of New Zealand is a product of the transpressive continental collision of the Pacific and Australian plates during the past 5 million years, prior to which the.

Stepping back in time. During late Paleozoic–early Mesozoic time, the geological setting of New Zealand was very different from that of today (Figs a, b & ).The Late Cretaceous–Holocene plate tectonic development of Zealandia is now quite well understood, taking account of evidence from North and South Island, Zealandia as a whole, and the Cited by: 7.

The New Zealand Official Yearbook seeks to present as completely as possible within one volume a wide range of information on the administration and national economy of New Zealand, as well as on social aspects.

In the selection and presentation of material there is kept in mind the use of the Official Yearbook not only as a standard reference work by the general public, but also as. GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION —The islands of New Zealand have been shaped from the projecting crests of earth folds which rise as broad ridges from the floor of the South Pacific Ocean, 1, miles east of the continent of Australia.

There are three main islands—North, South, and Stewart separated only by relatively narrow straits—with adjacent islets and a small group.

Epi-Permian folding is limited to northeastern New South Wales, eastern Queensland, and New Zealand, and the Early Triassic volcanicity follows a similar pattern.

Folding later in the Triassic affected an even smaller area: certain of the intramontane basins in eastern Australia and the southern part of the New Zealand Geosyncline. Alastair H.

Components. Australia's geology can be divided into several main sections: the Archaean cratonic shields, Proterozoic fold belts and sedimentary basins, Phanerozoic sedimentary basins, and Phanerozoic metamorphic and igneous rocks.

Australia as a separate continent began to form after the breakup of Gondwana in the Permian, with the separation of the continental.

The Ixtapa graben is located in the central part of the shear belt of the Sierra de Chiapas (Figures 1, 2, 3, and 4).This graben exposes the most complete middle Cretaceous (informal term used in Mexico for the Albian-Cenomanian stages)-Quaternary section of southeastern Mexico and displays structural features that are typical of transtensional and transpressional settings ().
