Central Asian Orogenic Belt Thermochronology tectonics detrital sediments
Detrital sediments are the erosion products of crystalline bedrock and hold vital information on the tectonic evolution of mountainous belts. This project focusses on the Central Asian Orogenic Belt. Detrital single-grain thermo-tectonic histories will be derived and linked to the formation, reactivation and exhumation of the sediment sources and to the sedimentation and burial processes that controlled the sediment deposition.
