Abstract

In this paper, interaction between tectonic and geomorphic processes related to oblique plate convergence in the southern part of the North Island of New Zealand is examined with respect to 1) the nature, timing and magnitude of displacement on the Wairapa Fault during a single earthquake in 1855 and the Holocene paleoseimic record as interpreted from small scale geomorphic features and regional uplift pattern, and 2) the relationship between vertical displacement on the Wairapa Fault and uplift of the Rimutaka Range west of the fault
