[MIS33-06] Generation process of earthquake-related turbidity currents along the mid slope terrace on the Japan Trench inner slope
Keywords:earthquake, Japan Trench, turbidite, tephra, 14C age
Many deep-sea turbidites were intercalated in the cores. They are considered to be seismo-turbidites regarding the sedimentary structures, grain compositions and surrounded topographic conditions. Age differences between hemipelagic and turbidite muds suggest that remobilization of surface sediments by the earthquake is the important process for turbidite deposition on the terrace.
