Gobi-Altai

Gobi_fault_1

Field work, luminescence dating and ASTER multi-spectral visible, swir and TIR data are used to determine the age of laterally offset alluvial units and to constrain late Quaternary slip rates. Our results indicate presistent sinistral slip rates of ~5-6 mm/yr acoss the Gobi-Altay fault during the last ~150 ka.
