Summary "This volume provides a summary of the geology of Eastern and Southeastern Tibet and its foreland. It covers an area of approximately 1.5 million square kilometers in 15 chapters on tectonic units that the authors recognize during 25 years of both field and laboratory study. Each chapter discusses the authors' understanding of the geology and offers interpretations of special geological relations, both local and regional, as well as currently unresolved problems of which there are many in this vast and poorly known region. Chapter 16 summarizes and interprets the preceding chapters. The volume is accompanied by a DVD-ROM containing four plates: two tectonostratigraphic maps, a map of unconformities and a plate of cross sections, in both Illustrator and ArcGIS formats. This is a unique map presentation and one that the authors suggest as a model for all geological maps"--Provided by publisher.
