Regional Patterns of Diagenetic Alteration in the Tertiary of the Kyushu-Korea Region: Implications for Plate Tectonics at the Eastern Asian Continental Margin

Takashi Miki (1), Yoshihiro Nakamuta (1), Jun Aizawa (2)


Studies of organic and inorganic diagenesis of Tertiary successions in the Kyushu-Korea region was combined with systematic correlation of the onshore geology. The degree of diagenesis can be attributed to two types of alteration: regional burial diagenesis in each locality was accelerated by additional heat supply from a zone of high paleotemperature in the Sea of Japan. This zone is related to the opening of the Sea of Japan in the Eocene.
