Cretaceous-Tertiary shortening, basin development, and volcanism in central Tibet

Kapp, Paul; Yin, An; Harrison, Timothy; Ding, Lin

Description

The geologic map pattern of the Qiangtang terrane in central Tibet defines a >600-km-long and up to 270-km-wide east-plunging structural culmination. It is characterized by early Mesozoic blueschist-bearing mélange and upper Paleozoic strata in the core
