Abstract Several competing hypotheses have been proposed to explain east-west extension observed across the Himalayan orogen, based primarily on observations from the western and central Himalaya. They make predictions for the temporal and spatial patterns of deformation in the eastern Himalaya. These tectonic models include radial spreading or oroclinal bending of the Himalayan arc, oblique convergence of the Indian continent, tearing or lateral detachment of the Indian slab and eastward flow o...

Abstract Widespread heterogeneities exist in the continental lithosphere, but their role in continental rifting is poorly understood. Here we investigate the influence of lithospheric heterogeneities on the pattern of continental rifting using 2D thermo-mechanical simulations. The heterogeneities are mainly manifest in a laterally inhomogeneous continental lithosphere, which has a cold west (CW) half and a hot east (HE) half. A series of experiments were performed to examine the effects of litho...

Abstract The Cenozoic India-Asia collision reactivated several ancient thrust belts in the interior of the Asian continent, including the West and East Kunlun ranges in central Tibet, and the Tian Shan and Qilian Shan further north. Both basin sedimentary records and thermochronological data show that the uplift of the South Tian Shan and Qilian Shan at the north occurred earlier than that of the West and East Kunlun ranges at the south. Diachronous continental deformation and initiation of upli...

There are usually abrupt changes in lithospheric thickness at the boundaries between ancient cratons and adjacent young mobile belts. Lateral variations in temperature and density between the two can trigger small-scale mantle convection (edge-driven convection, EDC). Here, we use two-dimensional thermal-mechanical simulations to explore the EDC caused by the lithospheric step between a craton and a mobile belt, and its role in the thinning of the craton lithosphere. The results show that the im...

Abstract Mid-crustal melting is widely documented under orogenic plateaus. However, the mechanism for its generation and its role in the evolution of orogenic plateaus remain poorly understood. Here we investigate the physical controls and consequences of crustal melting in plateau evolution using 3-D thermo-mechanical modeling method. Our simulations demonstrate that the convergence causes orogenic crust to have more upper crustal compositions and more radiogenic elements. The persistent radioa...

Abstract The northeastern margin of Tibet is the youngest risen part and key area for understanding the growth mechanism of the Tibetan Plateau. New broadband magnetotelluric (MT) data are conducted at the conjunction of the Longmenshan and West Qinling orogenic belts in NE Tibet. The preferred resistivity model obtained using 3-D inversion method shows a dramatic resistivity contrast from the Sichuan Basin (SB) to the West Qinling Orogenic Belt (WQOB). Beneath the SB and Longmenshan Orogenic Be...
