dc.description.abstract Two major tectonic units in NE Asia are the Sims-Korean (or North China) and South China Blocks that collided in the Permo-Triassic periods. The South China Block is suggested to extend eastward to the Korean Peninsula across the southern Yellow Sea. The Gunsan Basin is a well-defined, fault-bounded sedimentary basin in the SE Yellow Sea and is regarded as a structural link of the South China Block to the Korean Peninsula. We collected deep seismic sounding data recorded on ocean bottom seismometers to investigate how the crustal structure and nature of the South China Block vary in the Gunsan Basin toward the middle part of the Korean Peninsula. The main part of the Gunsan Basin is underlain by relatively thin (similar to 10 km thick) upper and much thicker (similar to 20 km thick) lower crustal layers, indicating a close affinity to the South China Block; whereas it shows distinction from the Korean Peninsula underlain by upper and lower crustal layers with equal (similar to 15 km) thickness. A change in crustal structure is recognized under the eastern margin of the Gunsan Basin toward the Korean Peninsula, that features a transition to the Korean Peninsula. The thick lower crustal layer in the Gunsan Basin appears to be inherited from the evolution of the South China Block including crustal shortening associated with the assembly of Rodinia in the Neoproterozoic before the collision between the Sino-Korean and South China Blocks. -
