西南日本に分布する更新世堆積物の全岩主要成分と希土類元素組成,鉱物組成を調査した。その結果、化学的風化の強度、源岩の組成、粒径には延長方向にも水平方向にも広範なバリエーションがあり、化学組成は源岩の組成と堆積物の粒径に影響されるが、堆積環境と更新世温暖期の化学的風化の強度との間に関連があることが明らかになった。さらに、源岩の組成や粒度が異なる堆積物であっても、CIA値が90を超す堆積物の希土類元素組成とカオリナイトに富む粘土鉱物の含有量は、西南日本において更新世(3$$sim$$4Ma)における激しい風化条件を示すことがわかった。

Whole rock major and REE geochemistry and mineral compositions of the Pliocene sediments in southwest Japan reveal the effects of source rock compositions and grain sizes, as well as the relationship between sedimentary environments and the degree of chemical weathering in the Pliocene warm period. A wide variation in the degree of chemical weathering, source rock compositions and grain sizes were observed with vertical and spatial changes in the sedimentary environment. Regardless of the wide variety of source rock compositions and grain sizes, REE and kaolinite-rich clay mineral concentrations in sediments, of which CIA values are generally above 90, are indicative of the intense weathering conditions that prevailed in the Pliocene period (3-4 Ma) in southwest Japan.
