Active deformation of the continental margin along the Nankai and Suruga Troughs, Southwest Japan

Auteur :
YONEKURA, N.

Description :
The remarkable development of tectonic land forms the Nankai and Suruga Troughs indicates that horizontal compressive interactions between the northern part of the Philippine Sea Plate and Southwest Japan have been active and accumulative as tectonic deformations of the continental margin through the Quaternary up to the present. The continental slope facing the Nankai and Suruga Troughs is highly deformed and more active than the oceanic trench itself.
