Recycling lower continental crust in the North China craton
Foundering of mafic lower continental crust into underlying convecting mantle has been proposed as one means to explain the unusually evolved chemical composition of Earth's continental crust, yetExpand

First evidence of >3.2 Ga continental crust in the Yangtze craton of south China and its implications for Archean crustal evolution and Phanerozoic tectonics
Ion microprobe (SHRIMP II) U-Pb zircon analyses reveal trondhjemitic magmatism at 2.90–2.95 Ga in the Kongling area of the Yangtze craton, south China, about 150 km south of the Permian-TriassicExpand

Chemical composition of the continental crust as revealed by studies in East China
We report abundances of sixty-three major, trace, and rare earth elements in the upper crust in five tectonic units (the interior and southern margin of the North China craton, the North and SouthExpand

Precambrian crustal growth of Yangtze Craton as revealed by detrital zircon studies
Clastic sedimentary rocks are natural samples of the exposed continental crust over large areas. The age and evolution of the Yangtze craton is not well known, because much of the craton is coveredExpand

Lithospheric thinning and destruction of the North China Craton
Lithospheric thinning and destruction of the North China Craton are intensively discussed in recent literature.It is unclear,however,about its time,thinning degree,spatial variation,mechanism andExpand

Age and growth of the Archean Kongling terrain, South China, with emphasis on 3.3 ga granitoid gneisses
The North China craton and the Yangtze craton (South China) both contain Archean rocks in eastern China. Unlike the North China craton, where Archean rocks are widespread, in the Yangtze craton theExpand

Mesozoic crustal thickening of the eastern North China craton: Evidence from eclogite xenoliths and petrologic implications
A suite of xenoliths of eclogite, garnet clinopyroxenite, and felsic gneiss is found in Early Cretaceous high-Mg [Mg # >45, where Mg # = molar 100 × Mg/(Mg + Fe total )] adakitic intrusions from theExpand

Geochemical, age, and isotopic constraints on the location of the Sino–Korean/Yangtze Suture and evolution of the Northern Dabie Complex, east central China
The Northern Dabie Complex in east central China lies between the Sino‐Korean plate to the north and the Yangtze plate to the south. The Northern Dabie Complex has been variously proposed toExpand

Mapping lithospheric boundaries using Os isotopes of mantle xenoliths: An example from the North China Craton
The petrology, mineral compositions, whole rock major/trace element concentrations, including highly siderophile elements, and Re–Os isotopes of 99 peridotite xenoliths from the central North ChinaExpand

Zircon U–Pb age and trace element evidence for Paleoproterozoic granulite-facies metamorphism and Archean crustal rocks in the Dabie Orogen
Abstract Zircon U–Pb ages and trace elements were determined for granulites and gneiss at Huangtuling, which are hosted by ultrahigh-pressure metamorphic rocks in the Dabie Orogen, east-centralExpand
