Description
As widespread tephra is considered to have been deposited widely in an extremely short time after volcanic eruption, it has an important role as a useful geological time index. To improve the accuracy of tephrochronology, we propose a widespread tephra correlation based on various characteristics of the tephra layers for the middle section of the Chikura Group from the southernmost part of the Boso Peninsula, Japan, with a refined chronorostratigraphy based on magnetostratigraphy and oxygen isotopic stratigraphic analysis of benthic foraminifers. Around the Plio-Pleistocene boundary, we were able to compare seven tephra layers with the other tephra layers in Plio-Pleistocene strata in central Japan, and were able to obtain a detailed tephrochronology. The improved accuracy of the integrated tephrochronology is expected to contribute to the understanding of environmental changes over time.
