Project: Tectonic reactivation of intracontinental Central Asia: chronologic evolution and role of inherited basement structures.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-09 – 31-OCT-11
- This project will reconstruct the tectonics of the intracontinental Central Asian Orogenic System. In particular, emphasis lies on the chronology of the different collision-accretion events that are responsible for formation and growth of Central Asia and, in a larger frame-work, of the Eurasian continent. Moreover, the role of inherited basement structures in the reactivation of older orogens will be evaluated.
