South China experienced an unusually complex tectonic history, and featurs a series of globally significant, and well-preserved geo-logical records. These include records of the assembly and breakup of the Neoproterozoic supercontinent Rodinia, Rodinia- and Pan-gea-age mantle plume events, Neoproterozoic glacial events, early complex life, large intraplate orogenic and magmatic events, extinc-tion events around the P-T boundary, continental subduction and exhumation, and record of the transition from an Andean-type active margin to the present-day Western Pacific-type active margin. These features make South China one of the few natural laboratories for studying fundamental geoscience problems and testing various theories and hypotheses.
Professor Zheng-Xiang Li and his multinational collaborative team have been working on the tectonic evolution of the South China Block for over 25 years. Their work challenged some traditional views, yet some of their new interpretations remain controversial amongst contemporary researchers. This book provides readers a summary of their views on the tectonic evolution of South China, and evidence that their interpretations were based on. It also provides a well illustrated eight-day field program in which the authors attempt to unravel the tectonic history of eastern South China through the examination of a series of carefully selected field traverses and out-crops. This latter part of the book can also serve as materials for field workshops or short courses on tectonic analysis using multidisci-plinary field observations and analytical results.



Preface
PART 1 A TECTONIC OVERVIEW OF THE SOUTH CHINA BLOCK 1
1.1 A brief reappraisal of tectonic models for southeastern SCB developed before
the 1990s 2
1.2 A cartoon time-space diagram summarising major events that shaped the SCB 3
1.3 Pre-1 Ga basement compositions 5
1.4 Mesoproterozoic to earliest Neoproterozoic Sibao Orogeny: Part of Rodinia
assembly? 6
1.5 Large scale mid-Neoproterozoic intraplate magmatism and continental rifting:
Long-lived mantle plume activities and Rodinia breakup 11
1.6 The Ordovicion?Silurian Wuyi-Yunkai (the “Caledonian”) Orogeny and foreland
basin development 16
1.7 Permian?Triassic orogenic events and a Jurassic?Cretaceous large magmatic
province 23
1.8 Transition from an Andean-type active margin (ca. 280 Ma? to ca. 90 Ma) to
the current Western Pacific-type margin soon after 90 Ma 29
1.9 Effects of Cenozoic India-Eurasia collision on the western margin of the SCB 31
