Abstract Reconstructing the evolution of the Bangong-Nujiang Tethyan Ocean (BNTO) plays an indispensable role in understanding the linkage between Gondwana dispersion and Tibetan Plateau accretion. The existence of the BNTO is inferred from presence of dismembered ophiolite bodies along the Bangong-Nujiang suture zone, which separates Lhasa from Qiangtang. In this paper, we present a detailed synthesis of ophiolite, metamorphism, magmatism, lithostratigraphy and tectonism from the western segmen...

Abstract Over the past decades, the northern Gulf of Cadiz has been the focus of a wide range of late Quaternary seismic and sequence stratigraphic studies, either addressing the slope contourite depositional system (CDS), or the development of the continental shelf. Yet, high-resolution seismic data bridging between these domains and age information have remained sparse. This study, based on new high-resolution reflection seismic profiles calibrated to IODP Expedition 339 sites U1386/U1387, now...

Abstract The Himalayas popularly known as the ‘Third Pole’ and ‘Water tower’ of Asia has attracted global attention under the context of climate change as rainfall in this region has decreased drastically, and temperature has risen very rapidly in the last century. Present study was attempted to quantify such abnormal warming and unexpected declining trend of rainfall vis-a-vis to identify factors influencing such abnormal behavior over the complex physiographical region technically known as Wes...

Abstract Mountains grow upward and outward when the accretion of material outpaces its removal. Mountain building is synergistically influenced by geodynamics, internal structures (crustal and lithospheric), and climate. The northward growth of the Qilian Shan, which occupies a transition zone between the ~4500 m high central Tibetan plateau and the adjacent

Abstract Natural soil CO2 emissions constitute a substantial portion of the carbon emitted in the atmosphere, particularly in volcano-tectonic areas where deep CO2 supply is also present because of the Earth's degassing. Hence, these emissions are considered of fundamental importance in the study of global CO2 budget estimates. Furthermore, in recent years, soil CO2 emissions have played an important role in the realm of seismic and volcanic studies as well as in the mitigation of gas-hazard-rel...

Abstract The Meso-Neoproterozoic period, sometimes referred to as the ‘boring billion’ or ‘Earth's middle age’, spans the interval between the formation of the Columbia and Rodina supercontinents. It is regarded as a stable era of the Earth. However, from a global perspective, there are many intensive events of mafic volcanism, dyke intrusions and formation of rift basins recorded in different cratons during this period. This paper focuses on rift basins that developed in three cratons in China ...

Abstract Raman spectrometry is a rapid, non-destructive alternative to conventional tools employed to assess the thermal alteration of organic matter (OM). Raman may be used to determine vitrinite reflectance equivalent OM maturity values for petroleum exploration, to provide temperature data for metamorphic studies, and to determine the maximum temperatures reached in fault zones. To achieve the wider utilisation of Raman, the spectrum processing method, and the positions and nomenclature of Ra...

Abstract The Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB), the largest accretionary orogen on Earth, has received considerable attention in the last 25 years. Various models have been proposed to explain the evolution of the CAOB, incorporating processes such as the lateral duplication of one single arc system along large shear zones, terrane accretion/amalgamation, oroclinal bending, ridge subduction, and trench migration. To better understand accretionary processes along the southwestern Siberian margin...

Abstract Resilience has been used over a wide range of scientific fields and often ambiguously, causing confusion over terminology and concepts and giving rise to distinct interpretations and misconceptions, even within the same scientific discipline. Starting by providing clarifications and definitions of the main terminology and key principles of ecological resilience theory, we pass on to expressing them through geomorphic dimensions of barrier islands. Three distinct environments (beach, dun...

Abstract Most Paleozoic marine craton basins in China are rich in natural gas except the Tarim Basin, where both oil and gas are prolific. Various hydrocarbon types have been found in this basin, including deep ultra-heavy oil, heavy oil, normal oil, volatile oil, condensate and natural gas. Petroleums with diverse types even coexist within a single reservoir. Generally, the Ordovician and Cambrian reservoirs are deeply buried (5500–8000 m) and intensively altered after initial oil and gas accum...
