The role of the East Asian active margin in widespread extensional and strike-slip deformation in East Asia

Schellart, Wouter; Lister, Gordon

Description

East Asia is a region of widespread deformation, dominated by normal and strike-slip faults. Deformation has been interpreted to result from extrusion tectonics related to the India-Eurasia collision, which started in the Early Eocene. In East and SE China, however, deformation started earlier than the collision Oatest Cretaceous to Palaeocene), suggesting that extrusion tectonics is not the (only) driving mechanism for East Asia deformation. It is suggested that the East Asian active margin...[Show more]
