AbstractDuring the Quaternary, global sea level was characterized by large fluctuations in amplitude and increased frequency. However, the eastern marginal seas of China, especially the northern East China Sea and Yellow Sea did not experience large-scale transgression until the middle Pleistocene. The Zhe-Min (Zhejiang-Fujian) Uplift was an important barrier in the East China Sea preventing transgression of sea water into the northern marginal seas of China, but its Quaternary evolution is still poorly constrained. Here we present a thick sand layer record (the top age is similar to 416 ka) of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Site U1428 from the northern Okinawa Trough to reconstruct the history of the Zhe-Min Uplift since the middle Pleistocene. Provenance analysis indicates that sediments from both sand and imbedded fine-grained calcareous-rich clay layers at the study site were mainly derived from the Yellow River, which for the first time indicates that the Yellow River sediments could influence the northern Okinawa Trough since at least the middle Pleistocene. Significant change of lithology at IODP Site U1428 at similar to 416 ka was attributed to the large-scale subsidence of the Zhe-Min Uplift, which is probably due to the rapid uplifting of Tibet during 0.52-0.38 Ma. Before similar to 416 ka, obstacle of the emersed ZheMin Uplift induced extremely severe reworking and promoted sand ridge formation in the shelf edge of southeastern Yellow Sea, and supplied sand sediments to the northern Okinawa Trough during transgression and high sea-level stages. After the subsidence of the Zhe-Min Uplift at similar to 416 ka, westward of tidal sand ridge and Yellow River mouth with the process of shelf transgressions favored fine-grained sediments input to the northern Okinawa Trough. Even during low sea-level stages, the flat terrain of the East Asian marginal sea shelf and low rainfall amount resulted in low discharge of Yellow River, and supplied fine-grained particles to the northern Okinawa Trough.
