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, ...
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 ...
Magmatic record of India-Asia collision
(2015-09-23) - Journal article,
New geochronological and geochemical data on magmatic activity from the India-Asia collision zone enables recognition of a distinct magmatic flare-up event that we ascribe to slab breakoff. This tie-point in the collisional ...
Delineating and characterizing the boundary of the Cathaysia Block and the Jiangnan orogenic belt in South China
(2016-04) - Journal article,
The Jiangshan-Shaoxing fault zone lies along the SE margin of the Jiangnan belt, and delineates the northeastern margin of the Cathaysia Block of the South China Craton. At Shijiao in NE Zhejiang, the fault zone consists ...
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 ...
