Written for researchers in the earth sciences, this collection of papers covers such topics as the tectonic development of the Qaidam Basin, vertical-axis bending of the Altyn Tagh belt and fault and a combined model of rigid-block motion with continuous deformation.
One, called the Altyn Tagh, runs for a length of more than 2,000 km and its trace shows up on satellite images as clearly as that of the San Andreas, the great strike-slip fault in California.
Today, in the middle of the third act, continental escape seems active again, this time along the Altyn Tagh fault bordering Tibet's northeast side.
