This paper contributes to the understanding of palaeoseismology in slowly deforming regions by demonstrating the interpretation of soft-sediment deformation to be a valuable tool in identifying palaeoseismicity where the present-day seismicity is low and the geomorphology initially does not indicate active tectonics by the presence of fault scarps, surface ruptures or diverted rivers. The Ejina Basin (also known as the Gaxun Nur Basin or Juyan Lake Basin) in Inner Mongolia exhibits highly variable endorheic lakes, such as the Late Quaternary Juyanze Palaeolake. We assessed the Holocene tectonic activity of the Western Juyanze Palaeolake Basin, situated within the Ejina Basin,...
