Summary
Abstract: The Cambrian volcanic arc of North Victoria Land and the Cambrian arc of NW Nelson (NZ) are strikingly similar. They are of island arc character but both now lie within continental crust. In NVL the volcanic arc is adjacent to granites of a continental margin arc of similar age. Four hypothesis can be tested:
a) The Bowers arc changed in character along its length and the two ... View entire text
