dc.description.abstractWe analyze the role of slab pull acting on the Pacific plate during its early Tertiary change in motion. Slab pull forces are estimated by integrating the negative buoyancy of a 700 km long slab along a revised subduction boundary model adopting the Müller et al. (2008) seafloor age reconstructions. Our results indicate that torques predicted from a simple slab pull model match the Pacific plate Euler vectors during the Tertiary fairly well. The change of the Pacific motion at ∼50–40 Ma appears to be driven by the onset of the Izu‐Bonin‐Mariana system and, soon afterwards, by the Tonga‐Kermadec subduction zones. © 2012 American Geophysical Societyen_US
