A bound on the viscosity of the Tibetan crust from the horizontality of palaeolake shorelines

Abstract:

Palaeoshorelines around four large lakes in central Tibet record a latest-Pleistocene-to-Holocene high stand during which the lakes were filled 150-200m more deeply than they are at present. GPS measurements of shoreline elevations around Zhari Namtso show that they are horizontal to within ±2m at the 2-σ level. Measurements of height made by combining Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission elevations with Google Earth imagery of shorelines around Zhari Namtso, Tangra Yumtso, Taro Tso, and Ngangla...
