Abstract
Jeju Island, a volcanic island in South Korea, has been one of the main targets of geophysical and/or geological studies because of its tectonic importance associated with the volcanism and tectonic link to the southern Korean Peninsula.In this study, we reinterpret deep structures of Jeju Island based on the 1-D inversion results for the sea effect corrected MT data. Among 108 MT sites, we select 11 MT sites, which are uniformly spread out across the island and have good quality data to examine the 1-D deep structures. The sea effect correction makes remarkable changes in the observed MT data at frequencies below about 1 Hz, playing an important role in revealing the deep structure. The 1-D resistivity models obtained from sea effect corrected MT data are greatly similar to one another, commonly showing the discontinuity at a depth of 18 km on average. This discontinuity can be interpreted as the transition zone separating resistive upper crust and conductive lower crust. This interpretation is consistent with the geophysical interpretations made for the southern part of the Peninsula which seems to be tectonically linked to Jeju Island. Reversely, this agreement can be the evidence supporting that Jeju Island is the extension of the Korean Peninsula.ood quality data to examine the 1-D deep structures.
