原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)The existence of the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic Mongol–Okhotsk Ocean is evident from the Mongol–Okhotsk suture, which stretches from central Mongolia to the Sea of Okhotsk. A lack of sufficient palaeomagnetic data and an otherwise diffuse suture with an abrupt termination to the west has led to difficulties in reconstructing the history, geometry and closure of this ocean. Both the timing and style of the ocean's closure are unclear and have led to several alternative reconstructions. Closure timing ranges between the Late Jurassic (∼155 Ma) and beginning of the Early Cretaceous (∼120 Ma), and the proposed kinematics include contemporaneous subduction along two opposite margins, subduction along only one margin or with a component of left-lateral shear. In the present study,...
