40 Knittel U Walia M Suzuki S and Lee Y H, For the Besshi unit one of the corner stones for the. assumed peak metamorphism at ca 116 Ma is a Rb Sr, isotope study of Minamishin et al 1979 who analysed 21. whole rock samples collected within a small area in the. upper reaches of the Asemi River in central Shikoku An. isochron age of 116 10 Ma was calculated and has since. been considered to date peak metamorphism of the,Sanbagawa Metamorphic Rocks e g Isozaki and Itaya. 1990 Aoki et al 2007 Otoh et al 2010 Aoki et al 2011. Itaya et al 2011 Itaya and Tsujimori 2015 This view was. supported by single grain ages of 132 112 Ma obtained for. zircon considered to be of metamorphic origin from the. eclogite unit Okamoto et al 2004 In addition eclogite. exhibiting partial melting textures contains zircons with rim. ages of 115 104 Ma Arakawa et al 2013,In contrast Wallis and co workers Endo et al 2009. Wallis et al 2009 Wallis and Endo 2010 based on Lu Hf. dating of garnet pyroxene pairs in eclogite suggest that. Sanbagawa metamorphism actually occurred at ca 88 89. Ma Aoki et al 2009 also reported an U Pb age of 86 3. Ma for metamorphic zircon from the Besshi unit but. ascribed this to retrograde metamorphism Knittel et al. 2014 and Endo et al 2018 report ages for detrital zircon. younger than 90 Ma from the purported Sanbagawa, Metamorphics within the Besshi unit Thus the question.
of the age of the Besshi unit of the Sanbagawa Belt is. contentious in part due to the uncertain interpretation of the. 116 Ma Rb Sr age e g Aoya and Endo 2017, In order to resolve the discussion on the significance of. the Rb Sr age obtained by Minamishin et al 1979 we re. sampled the area studied by these authors and determined. the U Pb ages of detrital zircon in order to determine the. maximum protolith ages of these rocks This is based on the. notion that the youngest detrital zircon is older than the. sediment hosting this zircon,The Sanbagawa Metamorphic Belt extends over a. distance of about 800 km across south western Japan Fig. 1 from Kyushu to the Kanto Mountains in Honshu To the. north it is bounded by the Median Tectonic Line In the. south the Sanbagawa Belt is bounded by the Jurassic. Chichibu composite belt Further south separated from the. former by the Butsuzo Tectonic Line the Shimanto, accretionary belt is exposed The latter is subdivided by the. Aki Tectonic Line into the northern part comprising strata. of late Cretaceous age and the southern part composed of. Paleogene to Miocene strata, In Shikoku three tectonostratigraphic units that differ in. age metamorphic grade and perhaps also chronology are. distinguished within the Sanbagawa Belt the Oboke unit.
