Nine sediment types are recognized in cores recovered by the Deep Sea Drilling Project from back-arc basins in the western Pacific. These include submarine fan turbidites, debris flows, silty basinal turbidites, biogenic pelagic carbonate sediments, resedimented carbonates, biogenic pelagic silica sediments, pyro-clastics, hemipelagic clays, and pelagic clays. Most of these sediments were deposited independent of basinal rifting (spreading) processes. The transition from biogenic pelagic… Expand
Volcano-sedimentary processes operating on a marginal continental arc: the Archean Raquette Lake Formation, Slave Province, Canada
Abstract The 200-m thick, volcano-sedimentary Raquette Lake Formation, located in the south-central Archean Slave Province, represents a remnant arc segment floored by continental crust. TheExpand

Diagenesis of sandstones in the back‐arc basins of the western Pacific Ocean
Sandstones occur in back-arc basins of the western Pacific at DSDP sites 299 (Sea of Japan), 297 (northern Shikoku Basin), 445 and 446 (Daito-Ridge-and-Basin Province), 453 (Mariana Trough), 286 (NewExpand
Nd isotope and geochemical constraints on the depositional setting of Paleoproterozoic metasedimentary rocks along the margin of the Archean Hearne craton, Saskatchewan, Canada
Abstract The Cree Lake Zone in the southwestern part of the Hearne craton, reworked during the Paleoproterozoic Trans-Hudson orogeny, includes the Wollaston Group, a sequence of PaleoproterozoicExpand
Reconstruction of the Silurian to Devonian stratigraphic succession along the northeastern margin of the Junggar block, Xinjiang, NW China, and its tectono-paleogeographic implications for the southwestern Central Asian Orogenic Belt
Abstract The Paleozoic sediments on micro-blocks in the southwestern Central Asian Orogenic Belt record the tectonic evolution of the Paleo-Asian Ocean and accretionary processes of the southExpand
Facies architecture, detrital provenance, and tectonic modulation of sedimentation in the Shikoku Basin: Inputs to the Nankai Trough subduction zone
The Shikoku Basin is a back-arc basin located offshore southwest Japan. Sediments within the basin make up a key part of the subduction inputs to the Nankai Trough. A 19 m.y. history of sedimentationExpand
