Guy Fitz and Paul Mann Evaluating upper versus lower crustal extension through structural reconstructions and subsidence analysis of basins adjacent to the D'Entrecasteaux Islands, eastern Papua New Guinea Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems 14

Version of Record online: 11 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ggge.20123

Key Points

  • Gneiss exhumed with little upper crust extension in adjacent sedimentary basins
  • Susbsidence analysis shows lower crust accommodated majority of extension
  • Lower crustal flow and inverted crustal density layers aided gneiss exhumation
