People from out of state assume that because of the location of UC Santa Cruz, most of our alums work in Silicon Valley.
"The presence of these flat-lying volcanic rocks tells us that the sedimentary rock was deformed prior to the volcanism, and it extends the age of volcanism in this part of Tibet from 15 million to 40 million years ago," Lippert said.Alonso began his career as a journalist for New York's Daily News.The vast Tibetan Plateau -- the world's highest and largest plateau, bordered by the world's highest mountains -- has long challenged geologists trying to understand how and when the region rose to such spectacular heights.The area's geologic history is recorded in layers of sedimentary rock 5,000 meters thick.Now a part of the high plateau, it was once a basin on the northern edge of the central plateau, Lippert said."People used to talk about the whole plateau coming up at once, but it has become clear that different parts of the plateau were elevated at different times," Coe said.
"Our work shows that the central part of the plateau was uplifted first, and it seems to fit pretty well with other studies." The rise of the Tibetan Plateau led to dramatic changes in the climate, both regionally and globally.November 3-19, 2017Hatlen Theater Set in mid–1950's Red Hook, Brooklyn, the story of longshoreman Eddie Carbone and a fatal mistake that changes his family forever explores themes of immigration, community, pride and secret love.November 9, 2017Pollock Theater The parallel stories of two women victimized by corruption echo over the landscape and highways of Mexico in this lyrical documentary. For climate researchers trying to understand major episodes of global climate change in Earth's past, the timing of the uplift is a crucial piece of information."One of the traditional views of when Tibet became a high plateau is that it's a relatively recent phenomenon that happened in the last 15 million years," said coauthor Peter Lippert, a UCSC graduate student who has spent five field seasons studying the geology of the plateau.Well, here is an article to prove those assumptions false.
