We propose relative entropy-based quantifiers for genuine multipartite total, quantum, and classical correlations. These correlation measures are applied to investigate the generation of genuine multiparticle correlations in decoherent dynamics induced by the interaction of two qubits with local- independent environments. We consider amplitude- and phase-damping channels and compare their capabilities to spread information through the creation of many-body correlations. We identify changes in
