Article
Full-text available
We have studied the history of earthquakes over the past 70 kyr by analyzing disturbed sedimentary layers around the margins of the Dead Sea. However, we know little about disturbances in the basin depocenter, where water depth is ~300 m, and accessible only by drilling. In this study, we compare disturbances from the Dead Sea depocenter, with the...

Full-text available
Large earthquakes (magnitude ≥ 7.0) are rare, especially along slow-slipping plate boundaries. Lack of large earthquakes in the instrumental record enlarges uncertainty of the recurrence time; the recurrence of large earthquakes is generally determined by extrapolation according to a magnitude-frequency relation. We enhance the seismological catalo...

Plain Language Summary The generally NW‐SE‐trending thrusts developed north of the Kunlun Range are the most prominent morphological feature in the western Qaidam Basin, NE Tibet. These folds have played a key role in the Miocene‐Quaternary uplift of the region. However, little is known about the long‐term rupture behavior of this active thrust zon...
Article
Full-text available
Plain Language Summary Some researchers propose that lowering sea‐level leads to mass failures, while, others suggest that raising sea‐level induces mass failures. In contrast, other researchers conclude that no clear correlation exists between mass failures and sea‐level change as the ages of failure events are random. This dispute is due largely...
Article
Full-text available
In lakes and oceans, links between modern sediment density flow processes and deposits preserved in long-term geological records are poorly understood. Consequently, it is unclear whether, and if so how, long-term climate changes affect the magnitude/frequency of sediment density flows. One approach to answering this question is to analyze a compre...

自20世纪70年代以来,位于构造活跃区的盆地沉积序列的岩性、粒度与沉积速率的正向突变,常被用来指示区域新构造活动。然而,这种常规方法已经受到国内外学者强有力的质疑——用来推断构造活动的沉积学证据也可由气候因素引起。因而,需寻找某种独立于气候因素的沉积学证据,来可靠的指示新构造活动。震积岩,由地震震动引起的、保存于湖相或海相地层序列中的事件沉积,能可靠的指示区域新构造活动。新兴的交叉研究方向——湖泊/海洋古地震学,通过研究保存于水下沉积序列中的震积岩,可延长强震记录,加深对断裂带活动性的认识。 文章以死海盆地(中东地区)和柴达木盆地(青藏高原东北缘)为例,从水下事件沉积响应的视角,借助超长尺度的震积岩序列,理解千年-构造尺度上的区域新构造活动特性。基于死海湖心457 m 长的ICDP 501...

Full-text available
Plain Language Summary Seismogenic turbidites are widely used for geohazard assessment. The use of turbidites as an earthquake indicator requires a clear demonstration that an earthquake, rather than non‐seismic factors, is the most plausible trigger. The seismic origin is normally verified either by correlating the turbidites to historic earthquak...
Article
The Pliocene-Quaternary aridification of the Asian interior is key to understanding the impacts of global cooling and Tibetan Plateau uplift and the potential linkage to North Pacific Ocean biochemical processes and global changes. However, there is a lack of detailed continuous Pliocene-Quaternary paleoclimatic records from the Asian interior beca...
Article
Full-text available
The intensification of Northern Hemisphere glaciation (iNHG) and uplift of the Tibetan Plateau have been argued to be among the main drivers of climate change in mid-latitude Central Asia during the Plio-/Pleistocene. While most proxy records that support this hypothesis are from regions outside the Tibetan Plateau (such as from the Chinese Loess P...
Article
To contribute to a better understanding of Neogene climate evolution in Central Asia, we here present the first orbitally tuned time scale for a drillcore record from the Qaidam Basin (NE Tibetan Plateau) that consists of lacustrine sediments and spans the late Pliocene to early Pleistocene (~3.3 to 2.1 Ma). Our tuning of Core SG-1b is based on the...
Article
The Xining Basin is well known for its thick and continuous sequence of fine-grained Cenozoic sediments. In addition, it contains important Xiejia fauna which define the Xiejian Stage of the early Miocene in the standard Chinese land mammal zonation, and it also provides detailed histories of eolian dust deposition which document the aridification...

Lacustrine sediments are important archives for paleoclimate reconstructions. The application of grain-size analysis as palaeoclimatic proxy in lacustrine clastics is valuable but also difficult because the typical polymodal grain-size distribution in these clastics. To better understand the grain-size distribution of lacustrine clastics and to pro...
Article
The Xining Basin in northern China lies topographically in the transitional zone between the Tibetan Plateau and the Loess Plateau, and climatically in the transitional zone between humid East Asia and the arid Asian interior. During the Cenozoic, the basin accumulated a thick, continuous sequence of fluviolacustrine-dominated red beds and subseque...

Full-text available
The Dead Sea drainage basin offers a rare combination of well-documented substantial climate change, intense tectonics and abundant archaeological evidence for past human activity in the Southern Levant. It serves as a natural laboratory for understanding how sedimentation rates in a deep basin are related to climate change, tectonics, and anthropo...
Article
Full-text available
Tibetan Plateau uplift and global cooling have generally been thought to have caused the drying of the Asian inland, but how and when these factors drove the aridification is unknown. The Xining Basin at the NE Tibetan Plateau received continuous Eocene-Miocene fine-grained sediments, providing an excellent opportunity to address this question. Her...

How sediment grain size corresponds to both climate change and tectonics is increasingly the focus of debate. The shrinkage and migration of the huge paleo-lake in the western Qaidam Basin (WQB), NE Tibetan Plateau (TP) provide an excellent case study. We present a nearly 6 Ma well-dated high-resolution grain size record from the 723-m-deep drill c...
