The climates of Asia are affected significantly by the extent and height of the Himalayan mountains and the Tibetan plateau. Uplift of this region began about 50 Myr ago, and further significant increases in altitude of the Tibetan plateau are thought to have occurred about 10–8 Myr ago, or more recently. However, the climatic consequences of this uplift remain unclear. Here we use records of aeolian sediments from China and marine sediments from the Indian and North Pacific oceans to identify… 
Continental drift and plateau uplift control origination and evolution of Asian and Australian monsoons
TLDR
The results suggest that the timings and causes of formation of the monsoons in South Asia, East Asia and northern Australia are different and the establishment of the simulated low-latitude South Asian monsoon appeared to have strongly depended on the location of mainland India, associated with northward plate motion, without much relation to the plateau uplift.
PALEOGENE EVOLUTION OF PRECIPITATION IN NORTHEASTERN CHINA SUPPORTING THE MIDDLE EOCENE INTENSIFICATION OF THE EAST ASIAN MONSOON
ABSTRACT The timing of the development of the East Asian monsoon in the geologic past is critically important for paleoclimatological studies, yet few quantitative data are available. Based on
Where were the monsoon regions and arid zones in Asia prior to the Tibetan Plateau uplift
The impact of the Tibetan Plateau uplift on the Asian monsoons and inland arid climates is an important but also controversial question in studies of paleoenvironmental change during the Cenozoic. In

Significance of the linkage between tectonics and climate is the long-lasting first order question in Geology that has never been answered clearly. The linkage between the uplift of Himalaya and
Evolution and variability of the Asian monsoon and its potential linkage with uplift of the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau
Uplift of the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau (HTP) and its linkage with the evolution of the Asian monsoon has been regarded as a typical example of a tectonic–climate linkage. Although this linkage

Climate in Eastern Asia is composed of monsoon climate in the east, arid and semi-arid climate in the north and west, and the cold and dry climate of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau in the southwest. The
Evolution of the monsoon and dry climate in East Asia during late Cenozoic: A review
Climate in Eastern Asia is composed of monsoon climate in the east, arid and semi-arid climate in the north and west, and the cold and dry climate of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau in the southwest. The
Modeling the climate effects of different subregional uplifts within the Himalaya-Tibetan Plateau on Asian summer monsoon evolution
Considering the different uplifting time of different subregions of the Himalaya-Tibetan Plateau (TP), a series of numerical simulations have been conducted with the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM4)
