    The stages of deformation documented in the Nutzotin Mountains sequence provide insight into the growth of collisional continental margins by the tectonic incorporation of basinal strata. Our data show that strata of the Nutzotin basin have been deformed into an accretionary wedge by north-dipping thrust faults and related overturned folds.   The Altaid tectonic collage extends over Central Asia, exposing numerous accretionary orogens that can account for the Palaeozoic continental crust growth. A pluridisciplinary approach, using geochronological, geochemical, structural and palaeomagnetic tools was carried out to unravel the architecture and the evolution of West Junggar Cited by:

      A clinoform is a two-dimensional surface with a sigmoidal (sloped) geometry that is characteristic of basin margin strata. They are timelines that represent a moment in geological time. clinoforms can be recognized in seismic, well log and outcrop data and are used to define basin margins, stacking patterns and shelf-edge trajectories.

      Earlier papers that defined systems tracts, including Vail () and Posamentier and Vail(), placed part of the FSST within the lowstand systems tract (LST). The sediments of this former LST definition included the deposits that accumulated just after the maximum rate of relative sea-level fall. and were divided into three separate depositional units - basin-floor fan, . Mountain building along continental margins thickens the crust and produces Barrovian-style metamorphism of felsic sedimentary rocks, yielding slates, schists, and gneisses (Fig. 5, stages G–H). Tectonic stabilization enables extensive erosion of mountains that produces arkose, quartz sandstone, and shales and carbonates in shallow seas (Fig Cited by: 8.
