Title:Sedimentary paleomagnetic evidence for counter-clockwise rotation of the Fiji Plateau
Authors:Gilliard, Thomas Chapman
Keywords:Paleomagnetism -- Pacific Ocean -- Fiji Plateau
Marine sediments
Submarine geology
Date Issued:1971
Abstract:This thesis reports the results of a detailed sedimentary paleomagnetic investigation of four closely spaced 7 to 11 meter piston cores collected on the Fiji Plateau in the Western Pacific in June, 1970. The sedimentary paleomagnetic measurements reported here are important for they provide an independent means with which to test this tectonic interpretation.This thesis is also important for it is one of the first times that variations in the declination vector of marine cores have been used to deliniate the tectonic history of an oceanic crustal plate.
