Evolution of the Lower Palaeozoic Nanhua Foreland Basin and nature of the Wuyi-Yunkai Orogeny, South China
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis reports results of a combined sedimentological, stratigraphic, detrital provenance, geochronological, isotopic and geochemical study of the early Palaeozoic South China Block (SCB). It reveals the driving mechanism for the Wuyi–Yunkai orogeny, and the sedimentary and provenance evolution of the lower Palaeozoic Nanhua foreland basin. The thesis further explores possible tectonic interactions between the SCB and northern India during the assembly of Gondwanaland in late Neoproterozoic to early Palaeozoic time.

Quantification of an Archaean to Recent Earth Expansion Process Using Global Geological and Geophysical Data SetsMaxlow, James (2001)Global geological and geophysical data, while routinely used in conventional plate tectonic studies, has not been applied to models of an expanding Earth. Crustal reconstructions on Archaean to Recent models of an expanding ...
Reassessment of continental growth during the accretionary history of the Central Asian Orogenic BeltKröner, A.; Kovach, V.; Belousova, E.; Armstrong, R.; Dolgopolova, A.; Seltmann, R.; Alexeiev, D.V.; Hoffmann, J.E.; Wong, J.; Sun, M.; Cai, K.; Wang, T.; Tong, Y.; Wilde, Simon; Henger, E.; Degtyarev, K.E.; Rytsk, E. (2013)We argue that the production of mantle-derived or juvenile continental crust during the accretionary history of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB) has been grossly overestimated. This is because previous assessments ...
Analysis of borehole geophysical data from the Mora area of the Siljan Ring impact structure, central SwedenMuhamad, H.; Juhlin, Christopher; Lehnert, O.; Meinhold, G.; Andersson, M.; Garcia Juanatey, M.; Malehmir, A. (2015)The Siljan impact structure is the largest known impact structure in Europe, the result of a Late Devonian meteorite impact (380.9 ± 4.6 Ma). It is outlined mainly by a ring of lakes and Palaeozoic sedimentary rocks of ...
