transition zone sea – land

The terrain concept of evolution of the deep structure of Earth’s crust and upper mantle in the north-sea of Okhotsk depression and in the adjacent land

Purpose. Using new data on the deep structure of the crust and upper mantle and on paleogeodynamics, resulting from complex interpretation, a model of platectonic development of the transition zone northern coast of the Sea of Okhotsk – Eurasia was developed. To show the role of terrains in the development of Okhotsk microplate paleosubduction, appearance of Okhotsk-Chukchi volcanogenic belt and its latter closing.
