摘要The Altyn Tagh range (ATR) is the northern geological boundary of the Tibetan Plateau and plays a key role in accommodating its Cenozoic lithospheric deformation. However, knowledge of the structural style and age of uplift of the ATR is limited and controversial. The Qaidam Basin, in the southeast side of the ATR, provides an outstanding field laboratory for understanding the history and mechanisms of ATR growth. This study presents a detailed sedimentological analysis of a 1040-m-thick late Cenozoic (similar to 17-5.0 Ma) sedimentary sequence from the western Qaidam Basin, together with the analysis of sedimentological data from nearby boreholes and sections. Our aims were to determine the spatiotemporal evolution of the sedimentary sequences in the study area and to explore their response to late Cenozoic tectonic activity in the ATR. The results show three major intervals of the sedimentary characteristics in the study area: similar to > 17-16 Ma, 10 Ma and < 5 Ma, which are closely related to the development of unconformities and growth strata recorded by high-resolution seismic reflection profiles. Combining the results with a comprehensive provenance analysis and with published records of regional climate change and tectonic activity, we discuss the possible factors responsible for the variations in the sedimentary characteristics of the studied sections. We conclude that significant tectonic responses in the western Qaidam Basin during the late Cenozoic were caused by three stages of tectonic activity of the ATR, at similar to > 17-16 Ma, similar to 16-10 Ma and similar to 10 Ma, during which the ATR respectively experienced tectonic uplift, fast strike-slip motion and intense uplift.
