Abstract Phanerozoic growth of continental crust on our planet is one of the important research themes in Earth Science. Here, we present the results of a systematic study of newly found and previously reported Mesozoic igneous rocks, including diorite cumulate, granodiorite cumulate, mafic magmatic enclaves (MME) and host granitoids in the central Lhasa terrane, southern Tibet. These igneous rocks give zircon U Pb crystallization ages of 199–189 Ma. Based on constituent mineral and bulk-rock co...

Abstract The Triassic granitoids are widespread in the eastern section of the East Kunlun Orogenic Belt (EKOB) on the northern Tibetan Plateau. These granitoids well record the evolution of the Paleo-Tethys oceans (named as A'nyemaqen Ocean in the EKOB). Our new zircon U Pb data together with ages in literature show that these granitoids represent long-lasting magmatism from the early (T1, ~ 251–248 Ma), middle (T2, ~ 247–238 Ma) to late (T3, ~ 234–214 Ma) Triassic. The Triassic granitoids displ...

Abstract The Troodos ophiolite is a classic and is one of the most complete and best-studied ophiolites on Earth. However, there are few studies on the geochronology of the plagiogranite in the Troodos ophiolite. With the advancement of zircon U Pb in situ dating method developed in recent decades, it is necessary to revisit the age of the plagiogranite. In this study, we carried out detailed petrography, zircon U Pb dating and mineral compositional analysis for the plagiogranite. Our new zircon...

Abstract Earth’s continents can come together to form supercontinents and the supercontinents can break apart into fragments of varying size scattering around the globe through a hypothetical process called continental drift. The continental drift hypothesis had survived after ∼ 60 years debate and evolved into the powerful theory of plate tectonics with unquestionable and irrefutable lines of evidence. This narrative statement is familiar and acceptable to everyone in the scientific community, ...

Abstract Geochemical and iron isotopic compositions of magnetite, ilmenite and pyrite separates from the Fe Ti oxide ores hosted in the Damiao anorthosite-type Fe Ti ore deposit were analyzed to investigate sub-solidus cooling history of the titanomagnetite. The Fe Ti oxides form two series of solid solutions, namely, ulvospinel-magnetite (Usp-Mtss) and hematite-ilmenite (Hem-Ilmss) solid solutions. The magnetite separates have 14–27 mol% ulvospinel, while the ilmenite separates have 5–8 mol% he...

Studies on intra‐plate ocean island basalts have demonstrated the control of lithosphere thickness on the extent of melting and pressure of melt extraction (i.e., the lid‐effect). However, whether lithosphere thickness also controls the composition of within‐continent basalts remains unclear. Here we test this hypothesis by studying the Cenozoic basalts containing clinopyroxene megacrysts from 10 localities throughout eastern continental China with a north‐south spatial coverage in excess of 250...

Abstract In order to reconstruct tectonic evolution history of the southern margin of Asia (i.e., Lhasa terrane) before the India-Asia collision, here we present a comprehensive study on the clastic rocks in the southern Lhasa terrane with new perspectives from sedimentary geochemistry, detrital zircon geochronology and Hf isotope. Clasts from the Jurassic-Early Cretaceous sedimentary sequences (i.e., Yeba and Chumulong Formations) display high compositional maturity and experienced moderate to ...

Recent studies demonstrate that lithosphere thickness variation exerts the primary control on global seafloor basalt compositions. If the mechanism of such control, i.e., the lid effect, is indeed at work, lithosphere thickness variation must also influence basaltic compositions in continental settings. To test this hypothesis, we chose to study Cenozoic basalts in eastern continental China over a distance of similar to 260 km along a southeast-to-northwest traverse with a steep topographic grad...
