      Key Points

      • The Tarim-Central Tianshan connection lasted to the Late Silurian
      • The inter-arc/back-arc South Tianshan Ocean opened in the Early Devonian
      • Advancing to retreating orogenesis occurred in the southern Paleo-Asian Ocean

      • Right-lateral slip across the Red River fault zone likely began in the L Miocene
      • Right-lateral slip drove structural inversion of the Gulf of Tonkin rift systems

      Accepted manuscript online: 9 JAN 2015 11:55PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003746

      Key Points

      • 1872 Owens Valley earthquake controlled subsequent seismicity distribution.
      • Caldera inflation influenced seismicity in northern Owens Valley.

      Key Points

      • Our results reveal a new shear zone, termed the Pabbar thrust
      • Duplexing processes dominate the Himalayan mountain building

      Accepted manuscript online: 7 JAN 2015 04:44PM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003749

      Key Points

      • new 3D geological model of the deep basin structure of the Middle Durance region

      Accepted manuscript online: 7 JAN 2015 12:53AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003723

      Key Points

      • New data from 4D analogue experiments
      • Two-phase tectonic evolution to generate structures similar to the ESFZ
      • Initial extensional phase related with a slab roll-back process.

      Accepted manuscript online: 7 JAN 2015 12:51AM EST | DOI: 10.1002/2014TC003701

      Key Points

      • Seismic cycle on a strike-slip fault is simulated using a new experimental model
      • Realistic rheologic, tectonics and kinematics boundary conditions are used
      • Main mechanisms and kinematics related to the seismic cycle are well reproduced

      • The South Cycladic Thrust is strongly reworked by top-to-the-N movements
