  • Ventifacts, developed on a variety of lithologies and at a range of scales are reported for the first time from the Falkland Islands, South Atlantic.
  • Plate boundary tectonics and oceanic island geomorphology in The geomorphology of plate boundaries and active continental margins.
  • This paper illustrates how studies of the geomorphology of oceanic islands can contribute to the understanding of nearby plate boundaries. For this purpose, an oceanic island is defined as one within an ocean basin. Case studies are given of three
  • contrasting situations : a) islands behind a subduction zone (the Law islands behind the Tonga trench in the Pacific| b) an island oceanwards of a trench (Christmas island near the Sunda trench in the Indian Ocean| c) islands scattered each side of a spreading
  • axis (in the South Atlantic).
  • Climate of a South African fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus) breeding island off the south-east coast of South Africa

  • Bird Island in Algoa Bay supports a breeding colony of South African (Cape) fur seals. This is the easternmost extreme of their breeding range and is likely to be the most environmentally marginal of the existing fur seal colonies. Climatic
  • conditions on Bird Island are analysed and issues of heat stroke and starvation examined. It is shown that modest (2°C) increases in average summer temperatures would greatly increase the number of potentially lethal hot days. - (AJC)
  • The biogeography of the macrolepidoptera of south-eastern Polynesia
  • The distributions and affinities of the macrolepidopteran taxa known from south-eastern Polynesia are investigated and contrasted with various geological hypotheses for the origin of the islands. A colonialist interpretation, long distance dispersal
  • into a westering assemblage of small islands much as seen today, appears to be most probable.
  • Ocean minerals : prospects for South Pacific islands in Natural resource development in the Pacific Islands region.
  • Geomorphology of South Atlantic Volcanic Islands. Part I: the Tristan da Cunha group
  • Volcanoes of the Tristan Group have varied physiography resulting from the interplay of repeated volcanic eruptions, coastal erosion and fluvial erosion. The geomorphic histories of the islands are more complicated than was described in earlier
  • accounts of the islands.

  • Mapping actual and predicted perceptions of wilderness enables the impact of resource use activities upon wilderness to be modelled. The Heaphry Road in the Norhwest portion of New Zealand's South Island is used to evaluate the effects
  • Comparing the effects of acidic deposition on the chemistry of small streams in the South Island of New Zealand with those in the Fichtelgebirge, F.R.G.

  • Erosion rate ; Linear regression ; Model ; New Zealand ; Shore platform ; South Island ; Topography ; Weathering
  • Simple linear regression is used to interpret erosion rates on two shore platforms from the Kaikoura Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. Using this analysis it is suggested that measured rates could be viewed as representatives of populations

  • Island uplift and lithospheric flexure : observations and cautions from the South Pacific in Neotectonics and morphotectonics.
  • Here the A. A provide new information from instrumented surveys of geomorphological features in the Society Islands, the North-west Tuamotu Archipelago and the Southern Cook Islands. The flexure models are also more generally evaluated in the light
  • of improved chronologies for island volcanism and the radiometric dating of emergent limestones and thus in terms of the likely geomorphological history of these islands.
