Metamorphic belts and related plutonism in the Japanese Islands editors, Hirokazu Kato and Harufumi Noro （29th IGC field trip guide book, v. 5） Geological Survey of Japan, Cited by: 2. The major accretionary complexes in the Japanese Islands are of Permian, Jurassic and Cretaceous–Paleogene age. These accretionary complexes became altered locally to low-temperature and high-pressure metamorphic, or high-temperature and low-pressure metamorphic rocks. Medium-pressure metamorphic rocks are limited to the Unazuki and Higo by: Paired Metamorphic Belts in Southwest Japan (C25) Authors=WALLIS Simon!ENAMI Masaki!TAKASU Akira!BANNO Shohei!IKEDA Takeshi.

High-pressure metamorphic rocks of the Japanese Islands are classified into 9 belts or zones: Tokoro, Kamuikotan, East Abukuma-Motai, Hida Marginal-Joetsu, Sangun, Sanbagawa, Kurosegawa, isolated area of Kyushu, and Yaeyama. The Kamuikotan, East Abukuma-Motai, Hida Marginal-Joetsu, and Kurosegawa zones are associated with abundant serpentinite. My book Metamorphic Rocks and Metamorphic Belts (in Japanese) was published by Iwanami Shoten, Publishers, in Tokyo in A few years later, Mr D. Lynch-Blosse of George Allen & Unwin Ltd contacted me to explore the possibility of translating it into English. Metamorphic Belts and Related Plutonism in the. Japanese Islands, 29th IGC Field Trip Guide Book, 5, pp. 1– (in Japanese with English abstract). The Cretaceous granitic rocks and associated regional metamorphic rocks in SW Japan were formed by a Cordilleran-type orogeny. Southwest Japan is regarded as a hypothetical cross-section of the upper to middle crust of the Eurasian continental margin in the Cretaceous, comprising (1) high-level granitoids (called San-yo type) and weakly to unmetamorphosed accretionary complexes that are.
As other examples of the uplift of low-P/T metamorphic belts, we can list the Hidaka low-.P/T metamorphic belt which was uplifted by the collision of the Kurile forearc with western Hokkaido since the late Miocene (Kimura and Hoyanagi, ), and the uplift of the Tanzawa low-P/T metamorphic complex (Seki et al., ) associated with the. My book Metamorphic Rocks and Metamorphic Belts (in Japanese) was published by Iwanami Shoten, Publishers, in Tokyo in Thus, translation accompanied by rewriting of substantial parts of the book was made in subsequent years, resulting in the present book Metamorphism and Metamorphic Belts. A brief account of the present-day tectonics of the Japanese Islands will be given here as a preliminary to detailed discussions of their Mesozoic and older metamorphic belts. The major topography of the Islands is the result of late Tertiary and Quaternary earth movements. Books to Borrow.
