Isabelle Jones is combining paleomagnetic and 40Ar/39Ar data from volcanic rocks in the Eastern states of Australia to reconstruct the Cenozoic motion of Australia. Of particular interest to her is a possible mid-Cenozoic bend in the Australian apparent polar wander path that may be related to the collision of the Ontong-Java Plateau with the Solomon Islands.
