U-Pb zircon geochronology of late Neoproterozoic–Early Cambrian granitoids in Iran: Implications for paleogeography, magmatism, and exhumation history of Iranian basement
Eurasia has largely grown to its present enormous size through episodic addition of crustal blocks by recurring birth and demise of oceans such as Paleotethys and Neotethys. Excluding the Kopet DaghExpand

Lithospheric evolution of the Andean fold-thrust belt, Bolivia, and the origin of the central Andean plateau
We combine geological and geophysical data to develop a generalized model for the lithospheric evolution of the central Andean plateau between 188 and 208 S from Late Cretaceous to present. ByExpand

Revised age of proximal deposits in the Zagros foreland basin and implications for Cenozoic evolution of the High Zagros
The regionally extensive, coarse-grained Bakhtiyari Formation represents the youngest synorogenic fill in the Zagros foreland basin of Iran. The Bakhtiyari is present throughout the ZagrosExpand

Detrital zircon provenance of Neoproterozoic to Cenozoic deposits in Iran: Implications for chronostratigraphy and collisional tectonics
Ion-microprobe U–Pb analyses of 589 detrital zircon grains from 14 sandstones of the Alborz mountains, Zagros mountains, and central Iranian plateau provide an initial framework for understanding theExpand

Thermochronology, geochronology, and upper crustal structure of the Cordillera Real: Implications for Cenozoic exhumation of the central Andean plateau
[1] Structural mapping, 40Ar/39Ar and fission track thermochronology, U-Pb geochronology, and basin analysis reveal rapid cooling during middle Eocene–late Oligocene and late Miocene–PlioceneExpand

Modern and ancient fluvial megafans in the foreland basin system of the central Andes, southern Bolivia: implications for drainage network evolution in fold- thrust belts
Fluvial megafans chronicle the evolution of large mountainous drainage networks, providing a record of erosional denudation in adjacent mountain belts. An actualistic investigation of the developmentExpand

Erosional control on the geometry and kinematics of thrust belt development in the central Andes
Long-term erosion rates in the central Andes may have influenced not only mean elevation and relief but also the regional geometry and kinematic history of the orogenic belt. A drastic along-strikeExpand

Early to middle Tertiary foreland basin development and the history of Andean crustal shortening in Bolivia
A >2.5-km-thick succession of Tertiary strata in the Eastern Cordillera of southern central Bolivia consists of predominantly fluvial and lacustrine deposits. The age of the base of the succession isExpand

Linking sedimentation in the northern Andes to basement configuration, Mesozoic extension, and Cenozoic shortening: Evidence from detrital zircon U-Pb ages, Eastern Cordillera, Colombia
Laser ablation–inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) analyses of 29 samples from the Eastern Cordillera of Colombia reveal the origin of northern Andean basement and patterns ofExpand

Mesozoic-Cenozoic evolution of the Xining-Minhe and Dangchang basins, northeastern Tibetan Plateau: Magnetostratigraphic and biostratigraphic results
[1] Accurate stratigraphic ages are crucial to understanding the deformation history of the Tibetan Plateau prior to and during the Indo-Asian collision. Efforts to quantify MesozoicCenozoic ages areExpand
