Lee, Wenrong Cao & Julia Ribeiro Nature Communications 8, Article number: 15659 (2017), doi:10.1038/ncomms15659 Long-standing debates exist over the timing and mechanism of uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and, more specifically, over the connection between lithospheric evolution and […]

Episodic nature of continental arc activity since 750 Ma: A global compilation

Episodic nature of continental arc activity since 750 Ma: A global compilation Wenrong Cao, Cin-Ty Lee, Jade Star Lackey Earth and Planetary Science Letters (2017) 461:85-95 http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2016.12.044 Continental arcs have been recently hypothesized to outflux large amounts of CO2 compared to island arcs so that global flare-ups in continental arc magmatism might drive long-term greenhouse […]
