14 and 23) confirm, for the first time, extensional deformation in the North Fiji Basin. The earthquakes are situated within the north-trending belt of seismicity between 172° and 174°E, and directly south of the ridge tripIe junction proposed by Kroenke et al. (this volume). The stress directions inferred for these two events are virtually identical (see inset in Figure 4), but are strikingly dissimilar from the remainder of the basin. The tension axes are rotated by approximately 55° from the neighboring earthquakes along the Hazel Holme Ridge, and by 60-65° from those observed in the central N orth Fiji Basin and along the Fiji Fracture Zone.
