Late Cenozoic deformation and uplift of the NE Tibetan Plateau: Evidence from high-resolution magnetostratigraphy of the Guide Basin, Qinghai Province, China
The Cenozoic intramontane Gonghe–Guide Basin in Qinghai Province, China, is tectonically controlled by the sinistral strike-slip framework of the Kunlun and Altyn Tagh–South Qilian faults in theExpand
Loess in the Tian Shan and its implications for the development of the Gurbantunggut Desert and drying of northern Xinjiang
Eolian loess is widely distributed on the various geomorphic surfaces between 700–2400 m a.s.l. on the northern slope of the Tian Shan. It is formed in a synchronous manner with dust transported fromExpand
The formation and structure of the sulfoxyl radicals RSO(.), RSOO(.), RSO2(.), and RSO2OO(.) from the reaction of cysteine, glutathione and penicillamine thiyl radicals with molecular oxygen.
This work reports an electron spin resonance study of the reactions of cysteine, glutathione and penicillamine thiyl radicals with molecular oxygen in frozen aqueous solutions at low temperatures.Expand
Northeastward growth and uplift of the Tibetan Plateau: Magnetostratigraphic insights from the Guide Basin
[1] Most of the evidence for the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau comes from its southern and central parts. Although the northern rim has been less studied, it may greatly contribute to theExpand
Paleomagnetic data bearing on the Mesozoic deformation of the Qiangtang Block: Implications for the evolution of the Paleo- and Meso-Tethys
Paleomagnetism has played an important role in quantifying the Mesozoic evolution of "Proto-Tibet". In this paper, we present new paleomagnetic data from five Middle-Upper Jurassic sedimentaryExpand
Paleomagnetic evidence for a mid-Miocene clockwise rotation of about 25° of the Guide Basin area in NE Tibet
Abstract Ten sections of Neogene molasse-type sediments were sampled in the Guide Basin of northeastern Tibet for magnetostratigraphy [X.M. Fang, M.D. Yan, R. Van der Voo, D.R., Rea, C. Song, J.M.Expand
Thiol peroxyl radical formation from the reaction of cysteine thiyl radical with molecular oxygen: an ESR investigation.
Using Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectroscopy, we have identified the cysteine thiol peroxyl radical (CysSOO.) at low temperatures in two aqueous glasses. This radical shows a typical peroxylExpand
Evolution of the arid climate in High Asia since ̃1 Ma: Evidence from loess deposits on the surface and rims of the Tibetan Plateau
The formation and development of the arid climate in High Asia remain controversial. This is largely because of the scarcity of continuous high-resolution geological records from the Asian interiorExpand
Mesozoic litho- and magneto-stratigraphic evidence from the central Tibetan Plateau for megamonsoon evolution and potential evaporites
The megamonsoon was a striking event that profoundly impacted the climatic environment and related mineral sources (salts, coals and oil-gases) in the Mesozoic. How this event impacted Asia isExpand
Grain size profiles in the Chengdu Clay, eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau: Implications for significant drying of Asia since similar to 500 ka BP
Abstract Asian aridification reflects a combination of the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and global cooling. Grain size analysis of the Chengdu Clay at the eastern margin of the Tibetan PlateauExpand
