From convergent plate margin to arc-continent collision : formation of the Kenting Mélange, southern Taiwan
(2016-10) - Journal article,
The Kenting Mélange on the Hengchun Peninsula, Taiwan, formed through tectonic shearing of subduction complex lithologies, probably within the plate boundary subduction channel between the Eurasian and Philippine Sea plates, ...
A Paleoproterozoic intra-arc basin associated with a juvenile source in the Southern Brasilia Orogen : application of U-Pb and Hf-Nd isotopic analyses to provenance studies of complex areas
(2016-05) - Journal article,
Early Proterozoic sedimentary basins are an important record of crust generation processes and consequently a fundamental key to unravelling Earth's evolution through geological time. Sediments within the basins are typically ...
Eocene magmatic processes and crustal thickening in southern Tibet : insights from strongly fractionated ca. 43 Ma granites in the western Gangdese Batholith
(2015) - Journal article,
This study reports zircon U-Pb age and Hf isotope, whole-rock major and trace element, and Sr-Nd-Pb-Hf isotope data for the Dajia pluton, western Gangdese Batholith, in southern Tibet. These data indicate that the pluton ...
Voluminous silicic eruptions during late Permian Emeishan igneous province and link to climate cooling
(2015-12-15) - Journal article,
Silicic eruptive units can constitute a substantive component in flood-basalts-dominated large igneous provinces, but usually constitute only a small proportion of the preserved volume due to poor preservation. Thus, their ...
Early Paleozoic and Early Mesozoic intraplate tectonic and magmatic events in the Cathaysia Block, South China
(2015-08-08) - Journal article,
The geodynamic framework of the South China Craton in the Early Paleozoic and Early Mesozoic has been modeled as developing through either oceanic convergence or intracontinental settings. On the basis of an integrated ...
