U/Pb zircon ages constrain the architecture of the ultrahigh-pressure Qinling–Dabie Orogen, China
New SHRIMP and TIMS zircon ages, 40Ar/39Ar ages, and eclogite locations contribute significantly to our understanding of the ultrahigh-pressure Dabie Shan. (1) The geographic extent of the YangtzeExpand
Subduction factory 2. Are intermediate‐depth earthquakes in subducting slabs linked to metamorphic dehydration reactions?
[1] New thermal-petrologic models of subduction zones are used to test the hypothesis that intermediate-depth intraslab earthquakes are linked to metamorphic dehydration reactions in the subductingExpand
Subduction factory 1. Theoretical mineralogy, densities, seismic wave speeds, and H 2 O contents
[1] We present a new compilation of physical properties of minerals relevant to subduction zones and new phase diagrams for mid-ocean ridge basalt, lherzolite, depleted lherzolite, harzburgite, andExpand
Tectonics of the Qinling (Central China): tectonostratigraphy, geochronology, and deformation history
Abstract The Qinling orogen preserves a record of late mid-Proterozoic to Cenozoic tectonism in central China. High-pressure metamorphism and ophiolite emplacement (Songshugou ophiolite) assembledExpand
Subduction factory: 4. Depth-dependent flux of H2O from subducting slabs worldwide
[1] A recent global compilation of the thermal structure of subduction zones is used to predict the metamorphic facies and H 2 O content of downgoing slabs. Our calculations indicate thatExpand
Structure and petrology of Tauride ophiolites and mafic dike intrusions (Turkey): Implications for the Neotethyan ocean
Cretaceous Neotethyan ophiolites occur in four east-west–trending subparallel zones within the Tauride tectonic belt in southern Turkey. The ophiolites of the Inner, Intermediate, and Outer zonesExpand
Exhumation of ultrahigh‐pressure continental crust in east central China: Late Triassic‐Early Jurassic tectonic unroofing
The largest tract of ultrahigh-pressure rocks, the Dabie-Hong'an area of China, was exhumed from 125 km depth by a combination of normal-sense shear from beneath the hanging wall Sino-Korean craton,Expand
Subduction Factory 3: An Excel worksheet and macro for calculating the densities, seismic wave speeds, and H2O contents of minerals and rocks at pressure and temperature
[1] An Excel macro to calculate mineral and rock physical properties at elevated pressure and temperature is presented. The workbook includes an expandable database of physical parameters for 52Expand
Sedimentary record and tectonic implications of Mesozoic rifting in southeast Mongolia
The East Gobi basin of Mongolia is a poorly described Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous extensional province that holds great importance for reconstructions of Mesozoic tectonics and paleogeography ofExpand
