Map of the North Bismarck Plate (as "Bismarck Nord") and its neighbouring plates (in French)

The North Bismarck Plate is a small tectonic plate located in the Bismarck Sea off the northeast coast of New Guinea. To the north it collides with the Pacific Plate and the Caroline Plate, part of the western part subducts under the Woodlark Plate of New Guinea, and it is separated from the South Bismarck Plate by a divergent boundary. It is a somewhat seismically active area.
