Crustal deformation during 1994-1998 due to oblique continental collision in the central Southern Alps, New Zealand, and implications for seismic potential of the Alpine fault

Abstract:

The positions of 115 ground marks in a 150 × 100 km area of oblique continental collision in the central Southern Alps, New Zealand, have been measured by Global Positioning System (GPS) two to four times between 1994 and 1998. Contemporary velocity and strain rate fields derived from these observations are largely invariant along the northeasterly strike of the mountains and Alpine fault. Across strike, more than 60% of the strain occurs within a band from 5 km NW to 20 km SE of the Alpine f...
