Long-Term Sustainability of a High-Energy, Low-Diversity Crustal Biome
Geochemical, microbiological, and molecular analyses of alkaline saline groundwater at 2.8 kilometers depth in Archaean metabasalt revealed a microbial biome dominated by a single phylotypeExpand

Diachronous uplift of the Tibetan plateau starting 40 Myr ago
The uplift of the Tibetan plateau is generally regarded as a response to the convective removal of the lower portion of the thickened Asian lithosphere. This removal is also thought to be responsibleExpand

Intraplate extension prior to continental extrusion along the Ailao Shan-Red River shear zone
Left-lateral movement of the Ailao Shan–Red River shear zone lends support to the hypothesis of continental extrusion resulting from the collision of India with Asia. Our new observations fromExpand

Geochemical and Sr-Nd isotopic characteristics of granitic rocks from northern Vietnam
Abstract Five major felsic igneous suites from northern Vietnam, with ages from mid-Proterozoic to early Cenozoic, were studied. Representative granitic rocks from the Posen Complex (mid-Proterozoic)Expand

First evidence for Archean continental crust in northern Vietnam and its implications for crustal and tectonic evolution in Southeast Asia
Southeast Asia, or, in a more strict sense, the Indochinese continent, was previously considered to be composed entirely of Proterozoic to Phanerozoic rocks, and reliable evidence for Archean crustExpand

Thermochronological evidence for the movement of the Ailao Shan–Red River shear zone: A perspective from Vietnam
In order to explore the timing of strike-slip movement along the Ailao Shan–Red River shear zone, an 40Ar/39Ar thermochronological study of the Day Nui Con Voi metamorphic massif in northern VietnamExpand

An ultraviolet laser microprobe for the in situ analysis of multisulfur isotopes and its use in measuring Archean sulfur isotope mass-independent anomalies
Abstract A laser fluorination microprobe system has been constructed for high-accuracy, high-precision multisulfur isotope analysis with improved spatial resolution. The system uses two lasers: (a) aExpand

Onset timing of left-lateral movement along the Ailao Shan–Red River Shear Zone: 40Ar/39Ar dating constraint from the Nam Dinh Area, northeastern Vietnam
Left-lateral motion along the Ailao Shan‐Red River (ASRR) Shear Zone has been widely advocated to be the result of the collision between the Indian and Eurasian plates and to account for sea-floorExpand

High prevalence of a novel mutation (2268 insT) of the thyroid peroxidase gene in Taiwanese patients with total iodide organification defect, and evidence for a founder effect.
The mutation of the thyroid peroxidase (TPO) gene that causes the total iodide organification defect (TIOD) is a common and severe condition leading to dyshormonogenesis of the thyroid gland inExpand

Microbial methane cycling in a terrestrial mud volcano in eastern Taiwan.
Microbial communities responsible for methane cycling in mud volcanoes onshore are poorly characterized. This study analysed bubbling fluids and cored sediments retrieved from a mud volcano inExpand
