Description

The Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province in Northwest China is the first book introducing the Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province. Based on more than twenty years study, this book systematically presents the time-spatial, geochemical, and geodynamic features, along with the metallogenesis and magma evolution of the Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province. Furthermore, it provides a new geodynamic model for Large Igneous Provinces.

This reference book is intended for researchers and graduate students in tectonics, igneous petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, earth evolution and planetary geology, as well as for mining industry professionals. This book will also play a very important role in Large Igneous Province and geodynamic research in the Central Asian tectonic domain.

Key Features

  • Provides temporal-spatial features of Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province using seismic and borehole data
  • Presents petrological and geochemical features and magma evolution of the rock units in Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province
  • Builds up a new model for Large Igneous Provinces based on the information from the Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province

Readership

Researchers and graduate students in tectonics, igneous petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, earth evolution and planetary geology, and mining industry professionals

About the Author

Shufeng Yang

Dr. Yang Shufeng is Qiushi distinguish professor in the department of earth sciences at Zhejiang University, and is also distinguish scientist of Zhejiang Province. After receiving his PhD in 1984, he spent 5 years in Nanjing university as associate professor and professor. In 1989, he become professor and chair of department of earth sciences at Zhejiang University and had been executive dean of graduate school of Zhejiang university for twelve years. He has paid attention to the Early Permian intra-plate magmatism in Tarim plate since 1991 supported by the Chinese National Key Rearch Project, general project of Chinese National Science Fund and project from oil company etc.. Supported by the Tarim oil company, he get lot of borehole data and seismic data to reveal the real appearance of Early Permian intra-plate magmatism covered by Mesozoic and Cenozoic strata, and he found the Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province. In 2009, he got the key project of Chinese National Science Fund to research the deep process and geodynamic Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province, and has gotten many new scientific discoveries. Dr Yang Shufeng is the author or co-author of more than 150 refereed papers and 6 books in Early Permian Tarim Large Igneous Province and relevant research fields.He has gotten one Third Prize of National Science Award, one First Prize of Science of China Education Ministry, one First Prize of Science and Techonology of Zhejiang Province and Two Second Prize of Science and Techonology of Zhejiang Province.
