The National Science Foundation's (NSF) MARGINS research program examines the processes governing continental margin evolution through four science initiatives. By promoting research strategies that redirect traditional approaches, these initiatives will help to stimulate coordinated, interdisciplinary research in a few focus areas over the next decade. For the MARGINS Source-to-Sink science initiative, New Zealand and New Guinea have been selected as the two primary focus areas (http://www.ldeo.columbiaedu/margins/SedStrat.html).
