Old ones - the Alpine Fault

(viewed 1700 times)
There are not many places in the world where you can put your hand on a tectonic plate boundary.

With the eye of faith you can see a diagonal line running from top right to bottom left, above the blackboard. Above the line is metamorphic rock of the Indo-Australian Plate; below the line is 11,000 year old muddy gravel of the Pacific Plate. The line itself contains thin layers of rock melted by friction during earthquakes at the contact between the two.
