Early Carboniferous paleomagnetic results from the northeastern margin of the Qinghai–Tibetan plateau and their implications
We conducted paleomagnetic investigations on limestone from the Lower Carboniferous Huaitoutala Formation in the Qaidam Basin near Delingha City, Qinghai Province, China. The characteristic remanent magnetization (D = 5.8°, I = −25.7°, k = 114.3, α₉₅ = 4.8°) passes a fold test and indicates a paleopole position of −39.2°N, 90.4°E and a paleolatitude of 13.5°N for the Qaidam Block for the early Carboniferous. Based on global tectonic reconstructions and paleontological evidence, we suggest...[Show more]
