A recent synthesis of tectonic movements in the southwest Pacific area west of the present position of the Andesite Line, the major convergent plate boundary, has been provided by Kroenke (1984; Yan and Kroenke 1993). From this work the origin of the larger islands in this area can be generalized as follows. About 85 million years ago, the eastern margin of the Gondwana continent was broken up by seafloor spreading, that is, by invasion of oceanic crust and marginal sea. At this time New Caledonia and New Zealand became separated from the continent.
For this reason the subtropics are typically dry areas, a pattern here well presented in the eastern Pacific area. From the subtropics the winds are drawn back to the equatorial low-pressure zone as trade winds which move at low elevation above the ocean. Because of the Coriolis force, the winds move as northeast trade winds towards the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) in the northern hemisphere, as southeast trade winds in the southern hemisphere. The ITCZ does not coincide exactly with the geographic equator.
3). From here ocean floor material is constantly renewed and moved to the subduction trenches along the Andesite Line, where it mostly disappears downward into the astenosphere. Thus, ocean crust is younger at the submarine rises and older at the subduction zones. Since the ocean crust is constantly renewed, it is still younger at the subduction side than the typically much older continental crust (sial). The oceanic plates remain relatively rigid in themselves and thus are pushed against or move alongside the adjoining continental plates.
