Petrologic and geochemical constraints on the petrogenesis of Permian Triassic Emeishan flood basalts in southwestern China
Abstract The Emeishan flood basalt is a large igneous province erupted during the Permian–Triassic period in southwestern China. Based on petrographic, major and trace element, and Sr–Nd isotopeExpand

Tibetan tectonic evolution inferred from spatial and temporal variations in post-collisional magmatism
Cenozoic magmatism on the Tibetan plateau shows systematic variations in space and time that must be considered in models concerning Tibetan tectonic evolution. After the India–Asia collision, whichExpand

Zircon U-Pb geochronology and Hf isotopic constraints on petrogenesis of the Gangdese batholith, southern Tibet
Abstract During the Mesozoic–Cenozoic, northward Neotethyan subduction and subsequent India–Asia collision gave rise to the extensive Transhimalayan magmatism that stretches from Burma and westernExpand

The amount of recycled crust in sources of mantle-derived melts.
Plate tectonic processes introduce basaltic crust (as eclogite) into the peridotitic mantle. The proportions of these two sources in mantle melts are poorly understood. Silica-rich melts formed fromExpand

Zircon U–Pb ages in Myanmar: Magmatic–metamorphic events and the closure of a neo-Tethys ocean?
Abstract Previous isotopic age studies have concluded that the main metamorphism in the Mogok Metamorphic belt (MMB) in Myanmar was Tertiary and caused by collision with or underthrusting by India.Expand

Plume-lithosphere interaction in generation of the Emeishan flood basalts at the Permian-Triassic boundary
The Emeishan flood volcanism that erupted at Permian-Triassic boundary time produced a large igneous province of at least 2.5 X 10 5 km 2 in the western margin of the Yangtze craton, southwesternExpand

Geochemical and Sr‐Nd isotopic characteristics of volcanic rocks from the Okinawa Trough and Ryukyu Arc: Implications for the evolution of a young, intracontinental back arc basin
The Okinawa Trough is an incipient intracontinental back arc basin that has developed behind the Ryukyu arc-trench system. To explore its magmatic evolution and the nature of the mantle source, weExpand

Adakites from continental collision zones: Melting of thickened lower crust beneath southern Tibet
Adakites are geochemically distinct intermediate to felsic lavas found exclusively in subduction zones. Here we report the first example of such magmas from southern Tibet in an active continentalExpand

Zircon U-Pb age constraints from Iran on the magmatic evolution related to Neotethyan subduction and Zagros orogeny
Abstract This study reports zircon LA-ICPMS U–Pb ages of 50 igneous rock samples from the Urumieh–Dokhtar magmatic arc (UDMA) and Sanandaj–Sirjan structural zone (SSZ) in Iran. These results,Expand

Detrital zircon U–Pb and Hf isotopic data from the Xigaze fore-arc basin: Constraints on Transhimalayan magmatic evolution in southern Tibet
article i nfo Before the continental collision of India with Asia, northward subduction of the Tethyan oceanic lithosphere beneath South Asia resulted in widespread arc magmatism in the Lhasa terraneExpand
