Title: Petrogenesis of Plutonic Rocks in the Ryukyu Arc, Japan
Authors: Kawano, Yoshinobu

Abstract: The Cretaceous to Neogene plutonic rocks are distributed over the eight islands of the Ryukyu Arc, namely Amami-O-shima, Kakeroma-jima, Uke-jima, Tokuno-shima, Okinoerabu-jima, Okinawa-jima, Tonaki-jima, and Ishigaki-jima. These plutonic rocks can be categorized based on their petrological characteristics and active periods into four groups: early Cretaceous (EC), late Cretaceous (LC), Poleogene (PG), and Neogene (NG). The initial Sr isotopic ratio of the PG and NG groups increased, whereas the initial Nd isotopic ratio decreased with increasing aluminum saturation index (ASI), thereby indicating the influence of the upper crustal material. The LC group also exhibits a high initial Sr isotopic ratio, a low initial Nd isotopic ratio, and high ASI, presuming that the source magma reacted with the upper portion of the crustal material. Such reactions with the upper crustal material were observed to have occurred three times between Cretaceous and Neogene, and these events may have been caused by changes in the tectonics of the Ryukyu Arc.
