[S-IT07] New constraints on the tectonic evolution of Northeast Asia

Mon. May 25, 2015 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM A03 (APA HOTEL&RESORT TOKYO BAY MAKUHARI)

Convener:*Jonny Wu(Department of Geosciences, National Taiwan University), Kyoko Okino(Ocean Research Institute, University of Tokyo), Cedric Legendre(Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica, Taiwan), Gaku Kimura(Department of Earth and Planetary Science of the Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo), Chair:Kenichiro Tani(Department of Geology and Paleontology, National Museum of Nature and Science), Yuan Hsi Lee(Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, National CHung-Cheng University)

This session aims to draw together new observational constraints, geodynamic models, and novel syntheses that have implications for the Mesozoic to present-day tectonic reconstruction of the NE Asian margin. Long-lived subduction, accretion, collision, and the formation of new marginal basins have shaped the vast region that today includes the Japan Sea, the East China Sea, the South China Sea, the Philippine Sea, the Western Pacific, China, Taiwan, Japan and the Korean peninsula. Rapid advances in imaging techniques have provided new high-resolution, crustal to lithospheric-scale models of NE Asian basins, slabs and cratons. We invite contributions from across the disciplines including geology, seismology, marine geophysics, sedimentology, geodesy, paleomagnetism, geochronology, and geodynamic modeling.
