Abstract
A series of marginal seas that are separated from the Pacific Ocean by island arcs developed in Eastern Asia. The environmental property of these marginal seas amplified under a sea-level lowstand during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). The Japan Sea was covered by low salinity water during the LGM. At the beginning of the post-glacial sea-level rise, the Oyashio Current firstly flowed into the Japan Sea throught the Tsugaru Strait. The influx of the Tsushima Current started around 10,000 yBP and become vigorously after 8,000 yBP. Meanwhile, the northward migration and influx of the Kuroshio Current into East China Sea started around 10,000 yBP and strengthened after 7,500 yBP. The route alternation of the Kuroshio Current might have contributed to the establishment of the Tsushima Current and acted as a trigger for the drastic environmental changes around the merginal seas in Eastern Asia at the time of the post-glacial sea-level rise.
