New paper published in GRL

Yin Lu´s latest paper just published in GRL uses a 2-Myr-long seismite record obtained from a paleo-lake in NE Tibet to understand the long-term seismo-tectonic evolution of the active thrust zone.

Key Points:

We interpret micro-faults, soft-sediment deformation, slumps, and detachment surfaces as paleoearthquake/tectonic indicators

The core records five seismite clusters between 3.6 and 2.7 Ma, revealing episodic thrusting in relation to intense regional deformation

During the clusters, regional deformation was concentrated more in the fold-and-thrust system than along regional major strike-slip faults
