The Ailao Shan-Red River shear zone (Yunnan, China), Tertiary transform boundary of Indochina
The Red River Fault zone (RRF) is the major geological discontinuity that separates South China from Indochina. Today it corresponds to a great right-lateral fault, following for over 900 km theExpand

New constraints on the structure, thermochronology, and timing of the Ailao Shan‐Red River shear zone, SE Asia
New structural, petrographic, and 40Ar/39Ar data constrain the kinematics of the ASRR (Ailao Shan-Red River shear zone). In the XueLong Shan (XLS), geochronological data reveal Triassic, EarlyExpand

Direct dating of left‐lateral deformation along the Red River shear zone, China and Vietnam
[1] Exposures of high-grade, midcrustal rocks within the Red River shear zone (RRSZ), which separates the Indochina and South China blocks, exhibit clear evidence of left-lateral, ductileExpand

Tertiary diachronic extrusion and deformation of western Indochina: Structural and 40Ar/39Ar evidence from NW Thailand
The Wang Chao and Three Pagodas fault zones cut the western part of the Indochina block and run parallel to the Red River Fault. Evidence of intense ductile left-lateral shear is found in the LansangExpand

Structural, petrological and thermal evolution of a tertiary ductile strike-slip shear zone, Diancang Shan, Yunnan
The Diancang Shan, a horst massif within the Red River fault zone in Yunnan, People's Republic of China, preserves a structural, petrological, and thermal record of two distinct phases of tectonicExpand

An Early Miocene Transition in deformation regime within the Red River Fault Zone, Yunnan, And its significance for Indo‐Asian tectonics
Recent work has tended to support the view that lateral extrusion of Indochina along the Red River fault zone was a significant factor in accommodating the convergence of India with Asia. To betterExpand

Bounds on strain in large Tertiary shear zones of SE Asia from boudinage restoration
We have used surface-balanced restoration of stretched, boudinaged layers to estimate minimum amounts of finite strain in the mylonitic gneisses of the Oligo-Miocene Red River-Ailao Shan shear zoneExpand

Alpine thermal and structural evolution of the highest external crystalline massif: The Mont Blanc
[1] The alpine structural evolution of the Mont Blanc, highest point of the Alps (4810 m), and of the surrounding area has been reexamined. The Mont Blanc and the Aiguilles Rouges externalExpand
