GRL features Yuntao Tian's latest paper on its cover

In his latest paper, Yuntao (in collaboration with colleagues in Australia and China) has used the apatite fission track method to reveal a Miocene phase of rapid cooling in the eastern Tibetan crust. This cooling event is attributed to synchronous river incision, consistent with regional surface uplift generated by crustal extrusion along a detachment at depth.
