Tectonic controls on surface erosion rates in the Longmen Shan, Eastern Tibet

Abstract

10 Be-derived catchment-wide denudation rates are positively correlated with topographic indices in the southern Longmen Shan.  Erosion rates are consistent over short-and long-term timescales across the Longmen Shan, suggesting an exhumational steady state.  Rock uplift pattern and topographic evolution across the Longmen Shan have been largely controlled by upper crustal shortening and fault geometry.
