[O02-P74] The Geological History of Kanto Loam Formation

*Rio Higuchi1 (1.Yokohama Science Frontier High School)

Keywords:Geology, Quaternary Period

There are large outcrops of Kanto loam formation along one of the tributaries of the Kikugawa River in Ohi-machi in Japan. The purpose of this study was elucidate the geological history around the Kikugawa River. The results of the field surveys show a fault and strata originally formed at the sea-bottom. In addition, the strata were tilted to the northwest. And the older the strata, the more tilted. It was presumed that the strata in this area were affected by a slip on the fault, and transgression in the Quaternary Period.
