Abstract The accretion of oceanic plateaus has played a significant role in continental growth during Earth's history, which is evidenced by the presence of oceanic island basalts (OIB) and plume-type ophiolites in many modern orogens. However, oceanic plateaus can also be subducted into the deeper mantle, as revealed by seismic tomography. The controlling factors of accretion versus subduction of oceanic plateaus remain unclear. Here, we investigate the dynamics of oceanic plateau accretion at ...

Understanding the conditions for forming new subduction zones at passive continental margins is important for understanding plate tectonics and the Wilson cycle. Previous models of subduction initiation (SI) at passive margins generally ignore effects due to the lateral transition from oceanic to continental lithosphere. Here, we use three-dimensional numerical models to study the possibility of propagating convergent plate margins from preexisting intraoceanic subduction zones along passive mar...

Abstract The continental craton is generally considered to be stable, due to its low-density and high viscosity; however, the thinning and destruction of cratonic lithosphere have been observed at various parts of the globe, for example, the eastern North China Craton (NCC). Although a large number of geological and geophysical data have been collected to study the NCC, the mechanisms and dynamic processes are still widely debated. In this study, using 2-D high-resolution thermo-mechanical model...

The collision-induced subduction transference is a composite dynamic process including both the terrane collision/accretion and the subduction initiation (SI) at the neighboring passive margin. This process occurred repeatedly during the evolution of Tethyan systems, with multiple ribbon-like continents or micro-continents drifting from Gondwana in the southern hemisphere and accreting to the Eurasian continent since Paleozoic. In the previous numerical studies, the dynamics of terrane collision...

Abstract Variable morphologies of subducting slabs are observed in tomographic images of the mantle transition zone (MTZ), where slabs appear to stagnate in the MTZ or enter the lower mantle. These contrasting morphologies of subducting slabs are dependent on the joint effects of various dynamic, kinematic and geometric factors. Force balance analysis indicates that the favorable conditions of slab stagnation in the MTZ include old/cold slab subducting into the mantle with large Clapeyron slopes...

Abstract Two distinct styles of continental collision are observed in nature, i.e. lithospheric-scale subduction versus crustal-scale underthrusting. The former refers to a collision scenario where the lower plate subducts below the lithospheric mantle of the overriding plate, whereas the latter is characterized by the underthrusting of the subducting plate beneath the crust of the overriding plate. Systematic numerical models were constructed to study the dynamics of these two different collisi...
