River response to an active fold-and-thrust belt in a convergent margin setting, North Island, New Zealand


High-resolution digital elevation data (TOPSAR 10-m grid) are used to reconstruct Late Quaternary growth histories of subtle folding in the Wairapa fold-and-thrust belt, North Island, New Zealand. Outcrop data of deformed latest Miocene and younger strata are combined with observations of warped and faulted late Quaternary terrace surfaces to unravel the geomorphic and structural history of the Huangarua River valley. These data permit comparison of short-term and long-term patterns of folding and enable to assess the impact of differential fold growth and climatically induced processes, such as variable sediment flux, on terrace genesis
