Abstract The assembly time and process of the South China Block and its subsequent breakup remain controversial. This paper presents a set of new mineral chemical, zircon U-Pb geochronological, elemental and Sr-Nd-Hf-O isotopic data of the Group 1 Yiyang pillow basalt, Group 2 Aikou and Xinyu mafic–ultramafic rocks, and Group 3 Yuanling-Anjiang gabbro-diabase from the central Jiangnan Orogen. Group 1 is ∼830 Ma high-Mg subalkaline basalt with the mineral assemblage of clinopyroxene, epidote, chl...

Numerical experiments are used in this study to systematically investigate the effects of convergence rate, crustal rheological strength, and lithospheric thermal structure on the dynamics of continental collision. The study focuses on the types, conditions and processes of unstable continental subduction. Modelling results suggest that the development of unstable continental subduction can be promoted by conditions that tend to decrease rheological strength of the lithosphere, such as low crust...

Abstract The Neoproterozoic tectonic pattern of the South China Block (SCB) is considered to be a key element in the Rodinia reconstruction and subsequent Gondwana assembly. Numerous studies have been done on the Neoproterozoic igneous rocks along the SE and NW Yangtze Block of the SCB, but the contemporaneous igneous rocks in the SW Yangtze Block has poorly been known so far. This paper documents a comprehensive set of U–Pb geochronological, elemental and Sr–Nd–Hf isotopic data for the granitic...
