Item description for Geology And Tectonics of Qinghai-xizang Plateau by Chengfa Chang...
This is a summary of new data and research results obtained by the author and other geology scholars, both in China and abroad, and presents evidence concerning the origin and chronology of successive collisions of continental fragments with Eurasian and Gondwanian provenance. It discusses the mechanisms by which the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau evolved and the crust was doubled in thickness. The Qinghai-Xizang Plateau is formed of a complex of small terrains accreted together. The boundaries between these terrains are defined by linear outcrops of dismembered ophiolite suites that mark the position of ancient oceanic tracts.
