[HDS25-P09] Development history of concentrated sackung features around northern tip of the active Neodani fault, central Japan
Keywords:sagging, sackung, active fault, Mino mountain, AMS-14C ages, tephra analysis
On the basis of AMS-14C ages of leaves, seeds, and twigs collected from peaty and lacustrine sediment as well as results of tephra analysis, it proved that all studied depressions were formed after the last glacial, but the formation ages vary from depression to depression: the oldest one was formed ~11,000 years ago whereas the youngest one occurred ~2,000 years ago. In addition, our pit excavations revealed that the sediments are deformed after their deposition, suggesting that some of the sackung scarps grew at least twice after ~3,600 years ago, and the most recent growth may have occurred associated with the 1891 Nobi earthquake on the Neodani fault. Multiple Holocene events of sackung-scarp formation and growth are consistent with earthquake recurrence interval of the Neodani fault (~2000-5000 years), so they may have a synchroneity.
