Abstract

Ridge subduction and the resulting formation of a slab window interrupts volcanic arc-type igneous activity and causes uplift of the arc system. These implied diachronous relationships are examined by comparison of the temporal and spatial positions of ancient migrated trench-trench-ridge triple junctions and the distribution of subduction-related igneous and metamorphic rocks in Japan.
