The northern boundary of the Tibetan Plateau is a new focus of contemporary debate concerning continental plateau formation as an intracontinental reponse to collisional orogency.Recent geological studies and limited geophysical measurements in this region have been cited to argue that a-uplife is due to internal imbricate stacking of Asian crust while b-Asian continental lithospherie is being detached and subducted into the underlying mantle. Such models contrast with competing paradigm derived primarily from observations in southern and eastern portions of the Plateau that attributes plateau formation ductile flow in the deep crust. This experiment is testing key elements in these hypothesis with a 2D passive source array with a very large aperture (700 by 800km)
