VOLCANISM AND VERTICAL TECTONICS IN THE PACIFIC BASIN RELATED TO GLOBAL CRETACEOUS TRANSGRESSIONS

Abstract:

The dominance of volcanic processes and the importance of vertical tectonics in the geological evolution of the Pacific Basin has been recognised since the time of Charles Darwin. Data gathered on several legs of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) and numerous marine expeditions in the past decade have confirmed Menard's postulate that the Pacific Basin was the scene of volcanism on an enormous scale in Mesozoic time. Widespread mid-plate volcanism between ∼110 and 70 m.y. B.P. characterise...
