Zircon U-Pb dates from the Taiheizan Complex Plutons in Akita Prefecture, NE Japan

Nakajima, Toru; Nagata, Mitsuhiro; Fukuda, Shoma; Sueoka, Shigeru

Chishitsugaku Zasshi (Internet), 129(1), p.503 - 507, 2023/11

Zircon U-Pb dating was carried out on granitic rocks from plutons in the Taiheizan Complex in Akita Prefecture, NE Japan. Two granodiorites from the Main Intrusive Rocks yielded weighted mean 206Pb/238U dates of 103.4$$pm$$1.0 Ma and 115.6$$pm$$1.1 Ma (1SE). Three porphyrygranite from the Young Intrusive Rocks yielded weighted mean 206Pb/238U dates of 11.4$$pm$$0.1 Ma, 4.7$$pm$$0.1Ma, and 4.8$$pm$$0.1 Ma (1SE). The older and younger dates can be interpreted as the ages of early and later stages of granitic intrusion at the sampling locations. The Pliocene U-Pb dates suggest that the Nibetsu Body in the Young Intrusive Rocks is one of the youngest granitic plutons currently exposed on Earth.

Evaluation of suitability of zircon as standard materials based on thermal history; Example of the Wassogatake Formation in Ishikawa Prefecture

Nagata, Mitsuhiro; Nakajima, Toru; Fukuda, Shoma; Sueoka, Shigeru; Yagi, Koshi*; Yokoyama, Tatsunori

Fisshion, Torakku Nyusureta, (36), p.9 - 13, 2023/00

Zircon U-Pb and fission track (FT) dating and moonstone (sanidine) K-Ar dating of the Wassogatake Formation in the southern part of Hakusan City, Ishikawa Prefecture were carried out as part of the search for zircon standard materials for dating. The weighted average U-Pb dates obtained from the three samples are ca. 21.9-21.7 Ma, overlapping within the uncertainty range. Zircon FT and moonstone K-Ar dates were obtained younger ages from some samples. In addition, the track lengths of the three samples are short. Based on the above results, the zircons of the Wassogatake Formation are effective for the high closure temperature dating method (e.g., U-Pb dating), but are not suitable for the low closure temperature dating method (e.g., FT dating).

U-Pb zircon dates from the Utaosa Rhyolite of the Teragi Group

We performed U-Pb dating on zircons from the Utaosa Rhyolite of the Teragi Group as part of the search for standard materials for dating of zircons. Previous studies about Utaosa Rhyolite have reported ca. 2.30-2.77 Ma zircon fission track, zircon (U-Th)/He, and biotite K-Ar ages. U-Pb dating was carried out on the multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer with a laser ablation system. The weighted mean $$^{238}$$U-$$^{206}$$Pb ages of 2.65$$pm$$0.16 Ma and 2.66$$pm$$0.15 Ma were obtained from two samples. These ages are consistent with the ages from the previous studies. Therefore the results show that zircons from the Utaosa Rhyolite may be effective as a standard material.

For reconstructing the uplift/denudation history of the fore-arc side of the NE Japan Arc on geologic timescales, U-Pb dating and apatite fission-track (AFT) thermochronometry were applied to granitoids in Kitakami mountains. In addition, U-Pb dating for the Jodogahama rhyolite at the easternmost Kitakami mountains was also carried out to estimate the timing of volcanism and its thermal effect. Consequently, U-Pb ages of 122.7 Ma and 117.3 Ma for 2 samples of the Cretaceous granites and AFT ages ranging from 156.8 Ma to 70.3 Ma of 15 samples were obtained. Concerning the Jodogahama rhyolite, U-Pb age of 44.3 Ma was obtained. Integrated AFT data of this study and previous ones in Kitakami mountains, the trend of ages shows younging toward west. Although such age trend can be explained by volcanism of the Jodogahama reflecting the migration of a paleo-volcanic front, all AFT ages exhibited significantly older than U-Pb data of the Jodogahama and the thermal inverse modeling based on track length distributions provided slow cooling patterns. These observations did not supported the reheating of volcanism as a cause of age trend. As future prospects, we are planning to improve the reliability of age data based on additional analyses and apply an ultra low-temperature thermochronometer, e.g., ESR method.

Estimation of intrusion ages in the Miocene-Pliocene granodiorite around the Tanigawa-dake based on zircon U-Pb dating

This study employed U-Pb dating for determining the intrusive age of young (several Ma) granitoids in Tanigawa-dake area, where rapid and intense uplift/denudation has probably occurred in Japan. As results, U-Pb age of 109 Ma for the Cretaceous granodiorite and 3.95-3.19 Ma about 3 samples of the Pliocene granodiorites were obtained. These U-Pb ages showed consistent with previously reported ages based on thermochronometers having lower closure temperatures such as K-Ar or zircon fission-track methods. All previous data indicated younger ages than U-Pb ones in this study. Therefore, our U-Pb data can be interpreted as intrusive ages of young granitoids, inferring multiple events possibly occurred at least twice and contributed to the formation in young granitoids in the Tanigawa-dake area.

Concrete debris contaminated with radioactive cesium and other nuclides have been generated from the accident in the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant and there will be generated due to the decommissioning of nuclear power plants in the future. Although conventional decontamination techniques are effective for flat concrete surfaces such as floors and walls, it is not clear what techniques to apply for decontaminating radioactive concrete debris. In this study, focusing on a pulsed power discharge technique, fundamental experimental works were carried out. Decontamination of concrete by applying the aggregate recycling technique using the pulsed power discharge technique was evaluated by measuring radioactivity of aggregate and sludge separated from the contaminated concrete. The results suggest that the separation into aggregate and sludge of the contaminated concrete debris could achieve decontamination and volume reduction of the radioactive concrete debris.

The single-pulse formation technique using a beam chopping system consisting of two types of high-voltage beam kickers was modified to improve the quality and intensity of the single-pulse beam with pulse intervals over 1 $$mu$$s at TIARA cyclotron facility of Japan Atomic Energy Agency. Reduction of the multi-turn extraction number for suppressing the neighboring beam bunch contamination was achieved by restriction of a beam phase width and precise optimization of a particle acceleration phase. In addition, the single-pulse beam intensity was increased by a factor of two or more by a combination of two types of beam bunchers using sinusoidal and saw-tooth voltage waveforms. As a result, a contamination rate of neighboring beam bunches in the single-pulse beam was reduced to less than 0.1 %. Long-term purification of the single pulse beam was guaranteed by the well-controlled magnetic field stabilization system for the TIARA cyclotron magnet. Provision of the high quality intense single-pulse beam contributes to improve the accuracy of experiments for investigation of scintillation light time-profile and for neutron energy measurement by a time-of-flight method.
