G = Goodenough Island, F = Fergusson Island, N = Normanby Island, R = Rossel Island, T = Tagula Island, MS = Moresby Seamount, MT = Moresby transform fault, M = Misima Island, W = Woodlark Island. Exploration wells Goodenough-1 and Nubiam-1 are labeled G-1 and N-1. The solid line is the landward boundary of oceanic crust and the thin double lines locate the spreading axes (Taylor et al., 1995).
