Surfacial sediments of 27 piston cores, 14 gravity cores and 5 dredged samples were taken form an offshore area of northeastern Taiwan for delineating the depositional features beneath the Kuroshio Current and around the southwestern edge of the East China Sea. The turn of direction from the Kuroshio Current in this area has resulted primarily from the effect of an ascent of the seafloor. The China coast current has spread coarse sediment in the East China Sea, Composed primarily of quartz… CONTINUE READING
