On the other hand, some small-scale features, such as the presence of seafloor older than 6C isochrone close to the intersection between Challenger Fracture Zone and the Selkirk trough, suggest a more complex tectonic history (and possible formation of Selkirk microplate before 24-25 Myr).
Along the path lines and particle lines, the integral along isochrone lines changes as follows:
