GSA Bulletin: From Titan to Tibet
Date:11/27/2012

d deposits are most consistent with the previously hypothesized passage of a thick piece of oceanic crust that collided against North America about 90 million years ago and then moved by plate tectonic forces underneath the western half of the continent. This oceanic plateau would have passed beneath the southern Rocky Mountains during the time of deposition of the gravel units. Vertical movement of North America would have resulted from the passage of this feature in the underlying mantle. As such, Paul L. Heller and colleagues suggest that these deposits record the migration of an oceanic plateau beneath the Rocky Mountain region.


Faulting within the Mount St. Helens conduit and implications for volcanic earthquakes
John S. Pallister et al., Volcano Disaster Assistance Program, U.S. Geological Survey Cascades Volcano Observatory, Vancouver, Washington 99683, USA. Posted online 21 November 2012; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/B30716.1.

This paper by John S. Pallister and colleagues describes the structural geology of a remarkably well-exposed cylindrical fault zone that surrounded lava spines at Mount St. Helens and possible relationships between faulting and volcanic earthquakes during the 2004-2008 eruption of Mount St. Helens.


Tertiary basin evolution along the northeastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau: Evidence for basin formation during Oligocene transtension
Weitao Wang et al., State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics, Institute of Geology, China Earthquake Administration, Beijing 100029, China. Posted online 21 November 2012; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/B30611.1

As one of the Cenozoic basins in the remote northern Tibet margin, the southern Ningxia basin encodes much information about the northward growth history of the Tibetan Plateau and the rela
