Notes "This book grew out of two sessions "Growth and Collapse of the Tibetan Plateau" at the EGU General Assembly held in Vienna during April 2009".
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Despite agreement on first-order features and mechanisms, critical aspects of the origin and evolution of the Tibetan Plateau, such as the exact timing and nature of collision, the initiation of plateau uplift, and the evolution of its height and width, are disputed, untested or unknown. This book gathers papers dealing with the growth and collapse of the Tibetan Plateau. The timing, the underlying mechanisms, their interactions and the induced surface shaping, contributing to the Tibetan Plateau evolution are tightly linked via coupled and feedback processes.
