[1] Recent studies of the northeastern part of the Tibetan Plateau have called attention to two emerging views of how the Tibetan Plateau has grown. First, deformation in northern Tibet began essentially at the time of collision with India, not 10–20 Myr later as might be expected if the locus of activity migrated northward as India penetrated the rest of(More)
We present a simple and generalized method to predict Available Soil Water Capacity (ASWC-TOP) for a given area using a topographic index, defined as ln(α/tanβ), where α is the upslope area draining past a certain point per unit width of slope, and β is the local surface slope angle. The estimated results (ASWC-TOP) were then compared with the available(More)
Magnetostratigraphy of sedimentary rock deposited in the Chaka basin (north-easternTibetan Plateau) indicates a lateMiocene onset of basin formation and subsequent development of the adjacent Qinghai Nan Shan. Sedimentation in the basin initiated at 11Ma. In the lower part of the basin ¢ll, a coarsening-upward sequence starting at 9Ma, as well as rapid(More)
