Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    Supplementary rotation file and feature collections to Holm, Robert J., Rosenbaum, Gideon, and Richards, Simon W. (2016) Post 8 Ma reconstruction of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands: microplate tectonics in a convergent plate boundary setting. Earth-Science Reviews, 156. pp. 66-81. The reconstruction was performed using GPlates software and is based on data derived from multiple geological datasets, including seafloor magnetic isochrons, 3D models of subducted slabs, paleomagnetic data, deformation patterns, and the spatio-temporal distribution of arc magmatism. Methods and data sources are explained in detail in the related publication.

  2. Type: note

    This dataset consists of 1 rotation file (.rot) and 5 geometry files (.gmpl). Rotation files contain a list of finite Euler rotation poles for each plate within the plate motion model. These rotation poles enable plates to be reconstructed through time. These are plain text files that can be opened and edited in any text editor. These files should be used in GPlates (http://gplates.org) in conjunction with associated geometry files to allow the geometries to be reconstructed through time. Geometry files (written using the GPlates Markup Language) may contain polygons, polylines and/or point geometries. Geometries usually include plate ids so that they can be reconstructed using an associated rotation file (.rot) using the program GPlates. GPlates can be downloaded from http:/gplates.org.
