High-altitude aeolian research on the Tibetan Plateau offers insights into the past, present, and future.
The bones of ancient rhinos, elephants, and fish constrain when the Tibetan Plateau rose high enough to prevent migration, a move that forced animals to adapt to high-altitude conditions.
Variations in surface reflectivity are as important as surface elevation changes in determining regional climate at nonpolar latitudes, according to a new modeling study.
A study of deformed and metamorphosed rocks exposed in Tibet’s Lopu Range suggests that episodes of crustal shortening and extension during the evolution of the Himalaya are related to subduction processes.
River erosion increased rapidly following rock uplift events in the plateau approximately 11 million years ago.
A new technique brings accurate models of traveling seismic waves to a regional scale.
The paradoxical thickness of the Tibetan Plateau has puzzled scientists for decades. Now new research offers up an explanation for this mystery.
