Northeast Japan: A Case History of Subduction

Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth

The papers in this special section focus on three main subjects: Mesozoic aspects of northeast Japan; the relation of Japan Sea opening with the tectonics and geochemistry of northeast Japan in the Tertiary; and the geophysical setting. The purpose of this overview is to link these subjects and provide a tectonic framework for north- east Japan and eastern Asia since the Mesozoic.
