Role of the Cheongryangsan Conglomerate and the Osipbong Basalt in Classifying Stratigraphy of the Hayang Group, Yeongyang Subbasin
Hwang, Sang-Koo ; Woo, Byung-Gul ;
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 18, issue 3, 2009, Pages 181~194
The Cheongryangsan Formation was reported to stratigraphically overlie the Gasongdong Formation and underlie the Dogyedong Formation in the northern part of the Yeongyang subbasin, and be divided into the lower Cheongryangsan Member and the Osipbong Member. But the members have more widely called as the Cheongryangsan Conglomerate and the Osipbong Basalt, because the latter have initially meant that thin basalt flows several times intercalate sedimentary rocks in the northern part but later must consider that they have a very dominant volume in the eastern one. Both formations are based on classifying the stratigraphy and play a role of an excellent key bed for stratigraphic correlation between local spaces in the subbasin dominant absolutely for reddish beds. Both formations play a role of excellent key bed in the northern and northwestern areas of the subbasin; the Osipbong Basalt, the midwestern, eastern and southern ones; the Cheongryangsan Conglomerate, the southeastern one.

) has been designated as the twelfth National Park in 1976, because it has magnificent aspect and seasonally spectacular landscapes. Juwang valley(
) has been designated as Noted Scenery No. 11 in 2003, because it has the same topographical landscape as rock domes, rock cliffs, caves, waterfalls and plunge pools. The most spectacular landscapes are exhibited in the densely welded zone of the Juwangsan Tuff. The rock cliffs generated from vertical joints in the densely welded zone, in which there are the same many rock cliffs as Geupsudae, Haksodae, Sinseondae, Mangwoldae, Giam and Byeongpungbawi, three caves such as Juwanggul, Mujanggul and Yeonhwagul in the cliff. The cliffs and caves are landscapes that were generated from vertical joints in the densely welded zone, and the rock domes and waterfalls are landscapes of erosional vertical joint planes in the zone. The vertical joints are columnar joints formed during cooling of the Juwangsan Tuff. Therefore the topographical features cause the cooling columnar joints that are vertically intersected in the densely welded zone of the Juwangsan Tuff.
Petrologic and Geomorphologic Characteristics of Micrographic Granite in the Ijin-ri Area, Ulsan

This study illustrates the relationship between the petrographic characteristics of micrographic granite and the topographic features around Ijin-ri. Light-brown to light- gray granite is composed of intergrown fine-grained quartz + orthoclase, displaying micrographic textures. Miarolitic cavities are abundant. Many micro-landforms including tor, tafoni, and gnamma occurred in the micrographic granite of the study area. Tafoni is dominant in the north and gnamma is dominant in south. From our study of the occurrence and textural properties, two alteration zones were clearly identified; one is an external zone (A) characterized by abundant of small sized miarolitic cavities and the other is an internal zone (B) having them less than zone A. The former is dominant in north, and the latter is dominant in south. Particular geomorphologic features such as fluting cores and raised rims are present in the Ijin-ri area. This suggests that development of miarolitic cavities played an important role in the formation of the various geomorphologic features. Consequently, the petrogenesis of the micrographic granite is related to geomorphologic features in the external zone typified by abundant tafoni such as the tiger rock, and the formation of a platform as micro-landforms is influenced by thetextural differences of host rock in the internal zone.
Textural and Genetic Implications of Type II Xenoliths Enclosed in Basaltic Rocks from Jeju Island

Ultramafic xenoliths from southeastern part of Jeju Island can be grouped into two types: Type I and Type II. Type I xenoliths are magnesian and olivine-rich peridotite (mg#=89-91), which are commonly found at the outcrop. Most previous works have been focused on Type I xenoliths. Type II xenoliths, consisting of olivine, orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene with higher Fe and Ti components (mg#=77-83) and lower Mg, Ni, Cr, are reported in this study. They are less common with a more extensive compositional range. The studied Type II xenoliths are wehrlite, olivine-clinopyroxenite, olivine websterite, and websterite. They sometimes show ophitic textures in outcrops indicating cumulate natures. The textural characteristics, such as kink banding and more straight grain boundaries with triple junctions, are interpreted as the result of recrystallization and annealing. Large pyroxene grains have exsolution textures and show almost the same major compositions as small exsolution-free pyroxenes. Although the exsolution texture indicates a previous high-temperature history, all mineral phases are completely reequilibrated to some lower temperature. Orthopyroxenes replacing clinopyroxene margin or olivine indicate an orthopyroxene enrichment event. Mineral phases of Type II are compared with Type I xenoliths, gabbroic xenoliths, and the host basalts. Those from Type II xenoliths show a distinct discontinuity with those from Type I mantle xenoliths, whereas they show a continuous or overlapping relation with those from gabbroic xenoliths and the host basalts. Our petrographic and geochemical results suggest that the studied type II xenoliths appear to be cumulates derived from the host magma-related system, being formed by early fractional crystallization, although these xenoliths may not be directly linked to the host basalt.

The lava flows forming the Manjanggul lava tube are commonly said to have a potential source from the Geomunoreum scoria cone. We inferred the source of lava flows with the Manjanggul lava tube, based on many studies about lava tubes within lava flows of active volcano in the world. We made a lava flow field map from lithofacies, features and latitude of lava surfaces in the northeastern part of Jeju Island, and then examined closely the distribution and mutual relation of lava tubes in each lava flow field. As result, the Geomunoreum lava tube system is divided into a series of master tubes(Utsanjeungul, Bukoreumgul, Daerimdonggul, Manjanggul, Gimnyeonggul, Yongcheondonggul and Dangcheomuldonggul lava tube), a complicated networks of small tubes(Bengdwigul lava tube), and a series of unitary tubes(Gimyeongbilemotgul~Gaeusaemgul lava tube) in Geomunoreum lava flows. Particularly a canyon, 2km in length to NNE direction from the Geomunoreum scoria cone, is interpreted to be collapse trench of lava tube roof that belongs to an upflow part of the master tube in the Geomunoreum lava tube system, according to the location and direction. Accordingly, the source of lava flows, forming the Manjanggul lava tube, is the Geomunoreum scoria cone.
Enriched Geochemical and Sr-Nd isotopic characteristics of Middle Triassic Plutonic Rocks in Hudongri, Chuncheon: Derivation from Enriched Mantle
Park, Young-Rok ;
The Journal of the Petrological Society of Korea, volume 18, issue 3, 2009, Pages 255~267
The intrusive rocks in the Hudongri area, Chuncheon located in central Gyeonggi Massif consist of gabbroic diorite and diorite. K-Ar age of biotite separated from diorite sample records middle Triassic age of 228 Ma. The intrusives are characterized by enrichment of MgO, Ni and Cr as well as large ion lithophile elements such as Sa and Sr, which is indicative of derivation of magma from enriched mantle. The intrusives also have enriched Sr-Nd isotopic compositions, which appear to result from a long-term incompatible element enriched mantle source with an effect of crustal contamination. Occurrence of abundant hydrous minerals such as amphiboles and biotite rather than anhydrous minerals of pyroxene and olivine in mafic intrusive as well as being plotted in volcanic arc field in tectonic environment discrimination diagram indicate the mafic-intermediate intrusives in the Hudongri area, Chuncheon were derived from mantle material enriched by subduction.
