INTRODUCTION Fault slip rates inferred from space geodesy sometimes disagree with those determined from geologic studies, which has led some workers to question whether fault slip rates inferred from geodetic surface velocities are representative of those averaged over longer time scales (Mériaux et al., 2004). Nowhere has this discussion been more contentious than in northern Tibet, along the left-lateral Altyn Tagh and Kunlun faults, where slip rate estimates have been used to argue for… CONTINUE READING
