Constraints on the rate of post-orogenic erosional decay from low-temperature thermochronological data: application to the Dabie Shan, China

Braun, Jean; Robert, Xavier


We have investigated whether low temperature thermochronological datasets can be used to constrain the rate of surface evolution during the post-orogenic phase of a mountain belt. We use a numerical method to solve the heat transport equation in the Earth's crust, including the effects of a changing, finite-amplitude topography and the resulting flexural isostatic rebound. We demonstrate that accurate estimates of the amount of relief loss can be obtained by applying a recently developed...[Show more]
