Palaeomagnetism of the West Sakhalin Basin: Evidence for northward displacement during the Cretaceous
A significant margin-parallel translation of terranes is postulated by all models for tectonic evolution of the East Asian continental margin, although the timing and magnitude of displacements of individual elements are poorly constrained as yet. The West Sakhalin Basin-a forearc basin associated with the Cretaceous volcanic arcs-is one of the displaced tectonic elements. Our palaeomagnetic study of the basin rocks provides the first quantitative constraints on its Cretaceous history. We...[Show more]
