Iodine concentration and (super 129) I/I ratios were determined in interstitial fluid collected from the Nankai Trough accretionary prism during Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expeditions 315 and 316. Iodine concentrations increase rapidly in the uppermost 100 m below the seafloor, before concentrations reach stable values between 200 and 400 mu M, reflecting the advection of iodine released during the degradation of organic matter in deep sediments. The (super 129) I/I ratios in the interstitial fluid start just below preanthropogenic seawater values and decrease rapidly with depth to ratios approximately 400X10 (super 15) . These ratios result in ages for the potential iodine source formation between 30 and 40 Ma, which are clearly older than the host sediments and demonstrate that advection of fluids is responsible for the observed distribution of iodine at these sites. Significant increases in (super 129) I/I ratios uphole are found just above the lithologic boundary between the overlying forearc basin and older accreted sediments. This observation suggests that only limited migration of ascending deep fluids occurs beyond the lithologic boundary, where sediment porosity drops abruptly from 60% to 50%, and that fluids move preferentially along the lithologic boundary.
