The Tibetan Plateau is one of the most geologically dynamic systems and the highest plateau in the world with ongoing three-dimensional crustal deformation. The Plateau is uplifting and deforming horizontally as observed by present-day global navigation satellite system (GNSS) and repeated leveling measurements. Crustal mass is conservative and less dense than the mantle, thus the horizontal shortening must be accompanied by crustal thickening and horizontal extrusion. According to the level of ...

A number of studies suggest that mountain ranges have strong impact on the global carbon cycle; metamorphic degassing from active collisional orogens supplies a significant fraction of the global solid-Earth derived CO2 to the atmosphere, thus playing a fundamental role even in today鈥檚 Earth carbon cycle. The Himalayan belt, a major collisional orogen still active today, is a likely candidate for the production of a large amount of metamorphic CO2 that may have caused changes in long-term climat...

Analysis of magmatic and sedimentary rocks of several large igneous provinces has demonstrated that the release of gas during plutonic-metamorphic processes may be linked to global climate change and mass extinctions. Aguablanca, one of the largest Cu鈥揘i鈥揚GE deposits in Europe, formed during the Variscan orogeny when a mafic magma intruded limestones and shales, creating a contact aureole composed of marble, skarn and hornfels. Our petrological and geochemical investigation of the aureole provid...

Hydrothermal graphite has been added to a regional-scale postmetamorphic fault zone in the High Himalaya. Fault rocks contain graphite veins and cement that locally constitute >50% of the rock. Individual graphite veins are as much as 1 cm wide, and are locally almost pure graphite, with minor muscovite and anatase. Hydrothermal graphite grain size (10鈥500 碌m) is substantially greater than background metamorphosed organic matter (鈭1 碌m). The graphite is crystallographically disordered, and has m...

The collision between the North and South China cratons in Middle Triassic time (240鈥225 Ma) created the world鈥檚 largest belt of ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) metamorphism. U鈥揚b ages, Hf isotope systematics and trace element compositions of zircons from the Xugou, Yangkou and Hujialing peridotites in the Sulu UHP terrane mainly record a ~470 Ma tectonothermal event, coeval with the Early Paleozoic kimberlite eruptions within the North China craton. This event is interpreted as the result of metasomat...

The Himalayan range exposes a spectacular assemblage of metamorphic rocks from the mid- and deep crust that have fostered numerous models of how the crust responds to continental collisions. Recent petrogenetically based petrologic and geochronologic studies elucidate processes with unprecedented resolution and critically test models that range from continuum processes to one-time events. The pronounced metamorphic inversion across the Main Central Thrust reflects continuum thrusting between ca....

The Syabru-Bensi hydrothermal system (SBHS), located at the Main Central Thrust zone in central Nepal, is characterized by hot (30鈥62掳C) water springs and cold (<35掳C) carbon dioxide (CO2) degassing areas. From 2007 to 2011, five gas zones (GZ1鈥揋Z5) were studied, with more than 1600 CO2 and 850 radon flux measurements, with complementary self-potential data, thermal infrared imaging, and effective radium concentration of soils. Measurement uncertainties were evaluated in the field. CO2 and radon...

Satellite measurements of global aerosol properties are very useful in constraining aerosol parameterization in climate models. The reliability of different data sets in representing global and regional aerosol variability becomes an essential question. In this study, we present the results of a comparison using combined principal component analysis (CPCA), applied to monthly mean, mapped (Level 3) aerosol optical depth (AOD) product from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Mu...

The spatial distribution of reactants and products of infiltrationdriven decarbonation reactions can be a record of the geometry and amount of reactive fluid flow during regional metamorphism. In the past, these distributions have been interpreted assuming (1) minerals are fixed in composition and (2) single layers are chemically isolated. Because neither assumption is normally valid, new transport models were developed that specifically predict the spatial distribution of reactants and products...

Abstract Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration (CDC) is an essential parameter of underground atmospheres for safety and cave heritage preservation. In the Chauvet cave (South France), a world heritage site hosting unique paintings dated 36,000鈥痽ears BP, a high-sensitivity monitoring, ongoing since 1997, revealed: 1) two compartments with a spatially uniform CDC, a large volume (A) (40,000 to 80,000鈥痬3) with a mean value of 2.20鈥扁0.01% vol. in 2016, and a smaller remote room (B) (2000鈥痬3), with a ...

Abstract Detailed petrologic and chemical investigation of mid-amphibolite facies calcareous, scapolite-rich metasedimentary rocks from the Mount Isa region in northern Australia is used to explore changing fluid chemistry with prograde metamorphism. The presence of widespread scapolite with Cl- and variably SO4-rich compositions in upper amphibolite facies rocks makes it unavoidable that the regional metamorphic fluids were locally highly saline and oxidised, and that high salinities persisted ...

Carbon is a key control on the surface chemistry and climate of Earth. Significant volumes of carbon are input to the oceans and atmosphere from deep Earth in the form of degassed CO2 and are returned to large carbon reservoirs in the mantle via subduction or burial. Different tectonic settings (e.g. volcanic arcs, mid-ocean ridges, and continental rifts) emit fluxes of CO2 that are temporally and spatially variable, and together they represent a first-order control on carbon outgassing from the...

Abstract Present-day along-strike heterogeneities within the Himalayan orogen are seen at many scales, from variations within the deep architecture of the lithospheric mantle, to differences in geomorphologic surface processes. Here, we present an internally consistent petrochronologic dataset from the Himalayan metamorphic core (HMC), in order to document and investigate the causes of along-strike variations in its Oligocene鈥揗iocene tectonic history. Laser ablation split-stream analysis was use...

Abstract Carbon is commonly locked in the crust in two carbonate minerals: 1) calcite; and 2) dolomite. Pure, dry calcite is thermally stable to high temperatures, but can be assimilated by melts ascending from the mantle to the surface. Dolomite can decarbonate at high temperatures in addition to being consumed by subarc magmas. In this study, experiments containing carbonate with compositions between dolomite and calcite (with minor iron) give evidence for decarbonation at temperatures as low ...

Fluid鈥揺arthquake interplay, as evidenced by aftershock distributions or earthquake-induced effects on near-surface aquifers, has suggested that earthquakes dynamically affect permeability of the Earth鈥檚 crust. The connection between the mid-crust and the surface was further supported by instances of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with seismic activity, so far only observed in magmatic context. Here we report spectacular non-volcanic CO2 emissions and hydrothermal disturbances at the f...

Abstract We undertake thermodynamic pseudosection modeling of metacarbonate rocks in the Wepawaug Schist, Connecticut, USA, and examine the implications for CO2 outgassing from collisional orogenic belts. Two broad types of pseudosections are calculated: (1) a fully closed-system model with no fluid infiltration and (2) a fluid-buffered model including an H2O鈥揅O2 fluid of a fixed composition. This fluid-buffered model is used to approximate a system open to infiltration by a water-bearing fluid....
