Origin of the Yellow Sea: an insight

  title={Origin of the Yellow Sea: an insight},
  author={Yaoling Niu and Jie Tang},
  journal={Science Bulletin},
Niu et al.[1]recently show that the basement of the Chinese continental shelf(beneath East China Sea and South China Sea)is geologically unrelated to the continental lithosphere of eastern China,but is of exotic origin.This 

Late Mesozoic transition from Andean‐type to Western Pacific‐type of the East China continental margin—Is the East China Sea basement an allochthonous terrain?

Geophysical features and crustal structure of the East China Sea basement were revealed based on geophysical inversion analysis with recent gravity and magnetic data. Our results show great

Extension and Strike-Slips in the Crust of the Yellow Sea (Probabilistic Gravity Model)

Distributions of the density contrast and velocity of seismic waves into the crust and upper mantle in the Yellow Sea region are considered. The rheological section of the tectonosphere of the Yellow

Strata sequence and paleochannel response to tectonic, sea-level, and Asian monsoon variability since the late Pleistocene in the South Yellow Sea

Abstract The continental shelf strata provide information regarding sea-level fluctuation and climate changes in the Quaternary period. A 5831.47-km-long high-resolution seismic profile and borehole

Geochronology, geochemistry and Hf isotopes of andesites in the Sandaowanzi gold deposit (Great Xing'an Range, NE China): implications for petrogenesis, tectonic setting, and mineralization

The Sandaowanzi gold deposit is an extremely Au-rich deposit in the Northern Great Hinggan Range in recent years. Zircon U–Pb geochronology, Hf isotope analysis, and the geochemistry of andesites of

Geochronology and geochemistry of Late Cretaceous – Paleocene granitoids in the Sikhote-Alin Orogenic Belt : Petrogenesis and implications for the oblique subduction of the paleo-Paci fi c plate

Article history: Received 25 January 2016 Accepted 24 September 2016 Available online 07 October 2016 We present zircon U–Pb ages, major and trace element analyses, and zircon Hf isotope data on the

Exotic origin of the Chinese continental shelf: new insights into the tectonic evolution of the western Pacific and eastern China since the Mesozoic

The effect of paleo-Pacific subduction on the geological evolution of the western Pacific and continental China is likely complex. Nevertheless, our analysis of the distribution of Mesozoic

First Finding of Eclogite Facies Metamorphic Event in South Korea and Its Correlation with the Dabie‐Sulu Collision Belt in China

Metabasite lenses occur within granitic gneiss at Bibong in the southwestern part of the Gyeonggi massif, South Korea. Bibong metabasites experienced an initial eclogite facies metamorphism

Deep Structure Characteristics and Geological Evolution in Yellow Sea and Adjacent Region

The information of faults was obtained by various processing of Bouguer gravity data in the Yellow Sea and adjacent regions. The distribution of crust thickness in the research region is also

Paleogeographic maps of the Japanese Islands: Plate tectonic synthesis from 750 Ma to the present

Abstract A series of paleogeographic maps of the Japanese Islands, from their birth at ca 750–700 Ma to the present, is newly compiled from the viewpoint of plate tectonics. This series consists of

The Late Permian to Triassic Hongseong-Odesan Collision Belt in South Korea, and Its Tectonic Correlation with China and Japan

We propose a new correlation of Middle Triassic (ca. 230 Ma) eclogites from the Hongseong area of the southwest Gyeonggi Massif, South Korea, with the Dabie-Sulu collision belt of China. Late Permian

Large tectonic movement of the Japan Arc in late Cenozoic times inferred from paleomagnetism: Review and synthesis

Abstract Paleomagnetic studies facilitate an understanding of the evolution of the Japan Arc in Cenozoic times from the perspective of tectonic movement. The Japan Arc rifted from the Asian continent

Clockwise rotations recorded in Early Cretaceous rocks of South Korea: implications for tectonic affinity between the Korean Peninsula and North China

Recent interest has focused on whether South Korea may have undergone variable tectonic rotations since the Cretaceous. In an effort to contribute to the answer to this question, we have completed a
