We report paleomagnetic data from the northeastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau to help understand the timing and distribution of deformation (i.e., vertical-axis rotations) during the India-Asia collision. Paleomagnetic results throughout Xining Basin strata, recently dated using magnetostratigraphy to between 52 and 17 Ma, show that some 25° of clockwise rotation with respect to the stable Eurasian continent occurred at ca. 41 Ma. In view of a regional compilation of existing paleomagnetic data from the northeastern Tibetan Plateau, these results suggest that this region experienced clockwise rotations in the regional Paleocene-Miocene basin system, including rotation in the Xining Basin, ca....
