By Yujiro Ogawa,Ryo Anma,Yildirim Dilek

Accretionary prisms in convergent margins are normal laboratories for exploring preliminary orogenic approaches and mountain development episodes.  also they are a big portion of continental progress either vertically and laterally. Accretionary prisms are seismically hugely energetic and their inner deformation through megathrusting and out-of-sequence faulting are an enormous problem for earthquake and tsunami harm in lots of coastal towns round the Pacific Rim. The geometries and buildings of recent accretionary prisms were good imaged seismically and during deep drilling initiatives of the sea Drilling application (and lately IODP) over the past 15 years. higher figuring out of the spatial distribution and temporal development of accretionary prism deformation, structural and hydrologic evolution of the décollement quarter (tectonic interface among the subducting slab and the higher plate), chemical gradients and fluid circulation paths inside of accretionary prisms, contrasting stratigraphic and deformational framework along-strike in accretionary prisms, and the distribution and ecosystems of organic groups in accretionary prism settings is most crucial in analyzing the evolution of historic advanced sedimentary terrains and orogenic belts by way of subduction-related processes. 

This ebook is a set of interdisciplinary papers documenting the geological, geophysical, geochemical, and paleontological positive aspects of contemporary accretionay prisms and ditchs within the northwestern Pacific Ocean, in keeping with many submersible dive cruises, ODP drilling tasks, and geophysical surveys over the past 10 years. it is usually numerous papers offering the result of systematic built-in stories of modern to old on-land accretionary prisms compared to smooth analogues.  the person chapters are info and photo wealthy, supplying an incredible source of knowledge and data from those serious elements of convergent margins for researchers, school participants, and graduate and undergraduate students.  As such, the publication should be an immense and specified contribution within the extensive fields of worldwide tectonics, geodynamics, marine geology and geophysics, and structural geology and sedimentology.
