The relationship between the three-dimensional cross-sectional forms of individual turbidite sandstone beds and those of time-sliced turbidite successions of the Neogene forearc basin fills, central Japan



The relationship between the three-dimensional cross-sectional forms of individual turbidite sandstone beds and those of time-sliced turbidite successions of the Neogene forearc basin fills, central Japan



AAPG Bulletin 83(8): 1343-1344



The turbidite succession can be divided into time-sliced units usually from tens of meters to hundreds of meters in thickness. The units are sometimes bordered by intercalation of relatively thin mudstone-dominated alternation in the sandy flysch succession, when the activity of turbidity currents have ceased or weakened temporally. It is very important to correlate individual turbidite sandstone beds in the thick turbidite succession widely and to disclose their three-dimensional cross-sectional forms not only to clarify the depositional mechanism of constituents grains from the turbidity currents but also to analyse the superimposing process of individual turbidite beds getting to the time-slice units. Usually it is very difficult due to the monotonous repetition of the enormous number of turbidite beds without useful marker-beds or due to the complicated structure of the turbidite succession. However, many useful tuff markers are intercalated in the Neogene turbidite succession which are distributed along the gently undulated anticline and syncline more than 40 km along the major folding trend and more than 5 km across the trend from west to east coasts of the Boso Peninsula, central Japan. These turbidite successions were formed as an sandy submarine fan deposits in an ancient forearc basin. Many individual turbidite sandstone beds were correlated bed by bed in many horizons of the succession throughout the basin. Detailed depositional process of each turbidite sandstone bed has been discussed base on the sedimentological data of these widely correlated turbidite sandstone beds.
