    • Global kinematics of tectonic plates and subduction zones since the late Paleozoic Era 

      Young, Alexander; Flament, Nicolas; Maloney, Kayla T.; Williams, Simon E; Matthews, Kara J; Zahirovic, Sabin; Muller, R. Dietmar (Elsevier, 2019-08-15)
      Detailed global plate motion models that provide a continuous description of plate boundaries through time are an effective tool for exploring processes both at and below the Earth's surface. A new generation of numerical ...
    • Global plate boundary evolution and kinematics since the late Paleozoic 

      Matthews, Kara J; Maloney, Kayla T; Zahirovic, Sabin; Williams, Simon E; Seton, Maria; Muller, R. Dietmar (Elsevier, 2016-11-01)
      Many aspects of deep-time Earth System models, including mantle convection, paleoclimatology, paleobiogeography and the deep Earth carbon cycle, require high-resolution plate motion models that include the evolution of the ...
    • Improving global paleogeography since the late Paleozoic using paleobiology 

      Cao, Wenchao; Zahirovic, Sabin; Flament, Nicolas; Williams, Simon E; Golonka, Jan; Muller, R. Dietmar (European Geosciences Union, 2017-12-04)
      Paleogeographic reconstructions are important to understand Earth's tectonic evolution, past eustatic and regional sea level change, paleoclimate and ocean circulation, deep Earth resources and to constrain and interpret ...
    • The interplay of dynamic topography and eustasy on continental flooding in the late Paleozoic 

      Cao, Wenchao; Flament, Nicolas; Zahirovic, Sabin; Williams, Simon E; Muller, R. Dietmar (Elsevier, 2019-06-20)
      Global sea level change can be inferred from sequence stratigraphic and continental flooding data. These methods reconstruct sea level from peri-cratonic and cratonic basins that are assumed to be tectonically stable and ...
    • Large fluctuations of shallow seas in low-lying Southeast Asia driven by mantle flow 

      Zahirovic, Sabin; Flament, Nicolas; Muller, R. Dietmar; Seton, Maria; Gurnis, Michael (American Geophysical Union, 2016-09-13)
      The Sundaland continental promontory, as the core of Southeast Asia, is one of the lowest lying continental regions, with half of the continental area presently inundated by a shallow sea. The role of mantle convection in ...
    • Melanesian back-arc basin and arc development: Constraints from the eastern Coral Sea 

      Seton, Maria; Mortimer, Nick; Williams, Simon; Quilty, Patrick; Gans, Phil; Meffre, Sebastien; Micklethwaite, Steven; Zahirovic, Sabin; Moore, Jarrod; Matthews, Kara J (Gondwana Research, 2016-11)
      The eastern Coral Sea is a poorly explored area at the north-eastern corner of the Australian Tectonic Plate, where interaction between the Pacific and Australian plate boundaries, and accretion of the world's largest ...
    • Post-Pangea global plate kinematics and geodynamic implications for Southeast Asia 

      Zahirovic, Sabin (University of Sydney Faculty of Science School of Geosciences, 2014-12)
      Modern plate reconstructions, with evolving plate boundaries that document the breakup of Pangea hold vital clues for the factors affecting plate motions. Previous studies have evaluated the present-day plate arrangements ...
    • The role of deep Earth dynamics in driving the flooding and emergence of New Guinea since the Jurassic 

      Harrington, Lauren; Zahirovic, Sabin; Flament, Nicolas; Muller, R. Dietmar (Elsevier, 2017-12-01)
      The paleogeography of New Guinea indicates fluctuating periods of flooding and emergence since the Jurassic, which are inconsistent with estimates of global sea level change since the Eocene. The role of deep Earth dynamics ...
    • Sequestration and subduction of deep-sea carbonate in the global ocean since the Early Cretaceous 

      Dutkiewicz, Adriana; Cannon, John S.; Müller, Dietmar R.; Vaughan, Sioned; Zahirovic, Sabin (Geological Society of America., 2019)
      Deep-sea carbonate represents Earth's largest carbon sink and one of the least-known components of the long-term carbon cycle that is intimately linked to climate. By coupling the deep-sea carbonate sedimentation history ...
    • Tectonic evolution and deep mantle structure of the eastern Tethys since the latest Jurassic 

      Zahirovic, Sabin; Matthews, Kara J; Flament, Nicolas; Muller, R. Dietmar; Hill, Kevin C; Seton, Maria; Gurnis, Michaell (Elsevier, 2016-11-01)
      The breakup of Pangea in the Jurassic saw the opening of major ocean basins at the expense of older Tethyan and Pacific oceanic plates. Although the Tethyan seafloor spreading history has been lost to subduction, proxy ...
