Late Pleistocene slip rate of the Hoh Serh-Tsagaan Salaa fault system, Mongolian Altai and intracontinental deformation in central Asia

Abstract:

The Mongolian Altai is an intracontinental oblique contractional orogen related to the far-field effects of the Indo-Asian collision. Global Positioning System (GPS) data suggest that ~10-15 per cent of total Indo-Asia convergence is accommodated across this orogen. The Höh Serh-Tsagaan Salaa fault system is one of several NNW-SSE-trending oblique contractional faults acting to partition strain and accommodate shortening and dextral shear in the Mongolian Altai. This fault zone displaces late...
