A Paleozoic subduction complex in Korea: SHRIMP zircon U-Pb ages and tectonic implications

Kim, Sung Won; Kwon, Sanghoon; Santosh, M.; Williams, Ian; Yi, Keewok


The Wolhyeonri complex in the southwestern margin of the Korean Peninsula is divided into three lithotectonic units: Late Paleozoic Zone I to the west, Middle Paleozoic Zone II in the middle and Early Paleozoic Zone III to the east. Zones II and III display characteristics of continental arc magmatic sequence. Zone II is dominated by mafic metavolcanics, whereas zone III is characterized by the presence of dismembered serpentinite bodies including chaotic mélange. These zones are proposed to...[Show more]
