Description:
During the Neoproterozoic breakup of the supercontinent Rodinia, Australia was rifted away from other elements of Rodinia along a boundary referred to as the Tasman Line. The Tasman Line consists of NE and NW-trending segments that appear to define a system of rifted margins connected by transform faults. Many recent tectonic models have interpreted NE-trending segments of the Tasman Line as extensional and NW-trending segments as transform boundaries, and have sought to reconstruct Australia's place in Rodinia by matching features with these orientations on other continents (e.g. Laurentia). Others, however,have interpreted NW-trending segments as extensional and NE-trending segments as transform boundaries, implying very different orientations for potentially matching structures on other continents.
