... to understand the timing and mechanisms of their development in order to decipher the growth and uplift history of the plateau. Crustal shortening in the Fenghuoshan-Nangqian and Qilian Shan-Nan Shan thrust belts initiated no later than the early Eocene, which formed the northern and southern boundaries...

... Qaidam Basin margin and the southern Qilian Shan). Our results emphasize that noncrystalline basement rocks (e.g., Mesozoic sedimentary rocks) in fold-and-thrust belts should be taken into consideration when seeking potential source areas by correlating zircon U-Pb ages of siliciclastic detritus...

... Miocene shortening along the frontal Nan Shan–North Qaidam thrust belt. These results are supported by paleocurrent analyses revealing an Eocene shift from roughly E-directed (axial) to SW-directed (transverse) dispersal of sediment. Variations in lithofacies, composition, U-Pb ages, and paleoflow...

...., 2016 ) and is consistent with 47–36 Ma apatite fission-track ages for rocks within the Fenghuoshan thrusts ( C.S. Wang et al., 2008 ), which indicate active exhumation. This evidence suggests that the Fenghuoshan thrust belt probably initiated at ca. 48 Ma. Cessation of slip on the Fenghuoshan thrust...

... ( Ghosh et al., 2006 ; Huntington and Lechler, 2015 ). The Nangqian Basin, located in the northeastern Qiangtang terrane, east-central Tibetan Plateau ( Fig. 1A ), was formed by flexural subsidence of the lithosphere induced by loading of thin-skinned thrust faults during Eocene time ( Fig. 1B...
