Abstract. The Lau Basin comprises oceanic crust that separates the remnant Lau Ridge volcanic arc from the active Tofua arc. The basin is situated above mantle exhibiting strong seismic wave attenuation; it overlies the west dipping seismic zone of the Tonga Trench subduction system and is presently opening at rates as high as cm/yr.

Seaward rollback of the trench axis, Cited by: Sediments of the North Fiji Basin have been studied as part of a geological and geophysical survey of the central and western parts of the basin. The study is based on a Cited by: 5. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. eruption of Kilauea Volcano.
