Late Archean to Paleoproterozoic evolution of the North China Craton: key issues revisited
Abstract A recently proposed model for the evolution of the North China Craton envisages discrete Eastern and Western Blocks that developed independently during the Archean and collided along theExpand
Archean blocks and their boundaries in the North China Craton: lithological, geochemical, structural and P–T path constraints and tectonic evolution
An examination of lithological, geochemical, geochronological, structural and metamorphic P–T path data suggests that the basement of the North China Craton can be divided into Eastern and WesternExpand
Review of global 2.1-1.8 Ga orogens: implications for a pre-Rodinia supercontinent
Abstract Available lithostratigraphic, tectonothermal, geochronological and paleomagnetic data from 2.1–1.8 Ga collisional orogens and related cratonic blocks around the world have establishedExpand
A Paleo-Mesoproterozoic supercontinent: assembly, growth and breakup
Abstract Geological and paleomagnetic data support the hypothesis that a Paleo-Mesoproterozoic supercontinent, referred to as Columbia, existed before the formation of Rodinia. This pre-RodiniaExpand
Metamorphism of basement rocks in the Central Zone of the North China Craton: implications for Paleoproterozoic tectonic evolution
Abstract Lithological, structural, metamorphic and geochronological data for the North China Craton enable its division into the Western and Eastern Blocks of Archean to Paleoproterozoic ageExpand
Amalgamation of the North China Craton: Key issues and discussion
Abstract Geological and geophysical data indicate that the Precambrian basement of the North China Craton (NCC) formed by amalgamation of a number of micro-continental blocks. The number of blocks,Expand
Geochemistry and petrogenesis of 270 Ma Ni-Cu-(PGE) sulfide-bearing mafic intrusions in the Huangshan district, Eastern Xinjiang, Northwest China : implications for the tectonic evolution of the
Abstract The Central Asian orogenic belt (CAOB) is composed of remnants of microcontinents, island arcs and ophiolites. The presence of voluminous Phanerozoic A-type granites suggest that continentalExpand
Mesozoic lithosphere destruction beneath the North China Craton: evidence from major-, trace-element and Sr–Nd–Pb isotope studies of Fangcheng basalts
Abstract. Major- and trace-element as well as Sr–Nd–Pb isotopic data of the Mesozoic Fangcheng basalts provide an insight into the nature of their mantle source and the secular evolution of theExpand
Middle Cambrian to Permian subduction-related accretionary orogenesis of Northern Xinjiang, NW China: Implications for the tectonic evolution of central Asia
Abstract Middle-Cambrian to Permian subduction-related records are widely distributed in Northern Xinjiang which can be grouped into the Chinese Altay–East Junggar–Eastern Tien Shan, West Junggar,Expand
Development of the North China Craton During the Late Archaean and its Final Amalgamation at 1.8 Ga: Some Speculations on its Position Within a Global Palaeoproterozoic Supercontinent
Abstract New data obtained over the past few years indicate that, by the end of the Archaean, the North China Craton consisted of two major crustal entities, identified as the eastern and westernExpand
