Abstract
  • We analyze the role of slab pull acting on the Pacific plate during its early Tertiary change in motion. Slab pull forces are estimated by integrating the negative buoyancy of a 700 km long slab along a revised subduction boundary model adopting the Müller et al. (2008) seafloor age reconstructions. Our results indicate that torques predicted from a simple slab pull model match the Pacific plate Euler vectors during the Tertiary fairly well. The change of the Pacific motion at ~50-40 Ma appears to be driven by the onset of the Izu-Bonin-Mariana system and, soon afterwards, by the Tonga-Kermadec subduction zones. (literal)
