Global continental weathering trends across the Early Permian glacial to postglacial transition : correlating high- and low-paleolatitude sedimentary records
(2014-10) - Journal article,
Time-equivalent Early Permian sedimentary successions from high-latitude Gondwana basins and from equatorial accumulations in North China, covering the glacial to postglacial transition, display correlatable trends in ...
A North Atlantic tephrostratigraphical framework for 130-60kab2k : new tephra discoveries, marine-based correlations, and future challenges
(2014-12-15) - Journal article,
Building chronological frameworks for proxy sequences spanning 130-60kab2k is plagued by difficulties and uncertainties. Recent developments in the North Atlantic region, however, affirm the potential offered by tephrochronology ...
Terminal suturing of Gondwana along the southern margin of South China Craton : evidence from detrital zircon U-Pb ages and Hf isotopes in Cambrian and Ordovician strata, Hainan Island
(2014-01-01) - Journal article,
Hainan Island, located near the southern end of mainland South China, consists of the Qiongzhong Block to the north and the Sanya Block to the south. In the Cambrian, these blocks were separated by an intervening ocean. ...
Anticlockwise P-T evolution at ∼280 Ma recorded from ultrahigh-temperature metapelitic granulite in the Chinese Altai orogenic belt, a possible link with the Tarim mantle plume?
(2014-11) - Journal article,
An ultrahigh-temperature (UHT) metapelitic granulite assemblage consisting of garnet(g)–spinel(sp)–orthopyroxene(opx)-sillimanite(sil)–cordierite(cd)–ilmenite(ilm)–biotite(bi)–plagioclase(pl)–quartz(q) occurs within ...
Large rivers and orogens : The evolution of the Yarlung Tsangpo–Irrawaddy system and the eastern Himalayan syntaxis
(2014-07) - Journal article,
The eastern Himalayan syntaxis has experienced some of the highest rates of deformation and erosion in the orogen during the Late Cenozoic, and the Yarlung Tsangpo, Brahmaputra, Irrawaddy, Salween, and Mekong rivers are ...
