The fidelity of paleomagnetic records carried by magnetosome chains[11 22, 2013]

Vice Professor Greig A. Paterson and his team undertake simple 2D (i.e., zero-inclination) deposition experiments using intact MTB cells. These experiment are used to investigate the first—order characteristics of how intact MTB record the ambien...


Crustal flow pattern beneath the Tibetan Plateau constrained by regional Lg-wave Q tomography[11 15, 2013]

Vice Professor ZHAO Lianfeng and his team construct a 0.05–10.0 Hz broadband high-resolution crust attenuation model for the Tibetan Plateau and its surrounding regions using Lg-wave Q tomography.
  The maximum spatial resolution is approximate...


New Constraints from Garnetite on the P-T Path of the Khondalite Belt: Implications for the Tectonic Evolution of...[11 04, 2013]

Postdoctor JIAO Shujuan and her teacher GUO Jinghui focus on the second garnetite type, from the Xiaoshizi area (Jining terrane of the Khondalite Belt), and utilize its mineral assemblages and microtextures to deduce the P-T evolution.
  The det...


Grove Mountains 020090 enriched lherzolitic shergottites: A two-stage formation model[11 01, 2013]

Professor LIN Yangting and his team research Grove Mountains (GRV) 020090, which is an enriched lherzolitic shergottite, distinct from other lherzolitic shergottites, except RBT 04262/1.
  They propose that the primordial parent magma of GRV 020...

P-wave tomography for 3-D radial and azimuthal anisotropy of Tohoku and Kyushu subduction zones[10 30, 2013]

Vice Professor WANG Jian and his team determined high-resolution P-wave tomography for 3-D radial and azimuthal anisotropy of the Tohoku and Kyushu subduction zones using a large number of high-quality arrival-time data of local earthquakes record...


Effect of aridification on carbon isotopic variation and ecologic evolution at 5.3 Ma in the Asian interior[10 24, 2013]

Professor SUN Jimin and his team use carbon isotope compositions of organic matter to reconstruct the history of ecologic evolution during the late Cenozoic in the Tarim and Junggar Basins. The Cenozoic era is marked by dramatic climatic and ecolo...

Crustal and uppermost mantle structure and seismotectonics of North China Craton[10 14, 2013]

Vice Professor WANG Jian and his team determine a 3-D P-wave anisotropic tomography of the crust and uppermost mantle beneath North China Craton (NCC) using 107,976 P-wave arrival times from 16,073 local earthquakes recorded by 380 seismic station...


P and SH velocity structure in the upper mantle beneath Northeast China: Evidence for a stagnant slab in hydrous ...[10 12, 2013]

Vice Professor LI Juan and her team investigate both S and P wave velocity structures in the mantle transition zone beneath Northeast China and northern part of North China Craton, where the northwestern Pacific plate is imaged to subhorizontally ...
