The tectonics of the western Ordos Plateau, Ningxia, China: slip rates on the Luoshan and East Helanshan Faults

Abstract:

Analysis of the locus, style and rates of faulting is fundamental to understanding the kinematics of continental deformation. The Ordos Plateau lies to the northeast of Tibet, within the India-Eurasia collision zone. Previous studies have suggested that it behaves rigidly and rotates anticlockwise within a large-scale zone of ENE-WSW left-lateral shearing. For this rotation to be accommodated, the eastern and western margins of the Ordos Plateau should be undergoing right-lateral shearing and...
