Low temperature thermochronology data set of the Yalong River thrust belt on the eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau

This data set includes apatite and zircon (U-Th) / He ages, apatite fission-track (AFT) ages of the Yalong River thrust belt, which will be continuously updated in the future. The first part is the apatite and zircon He and apatite fission-track data from the Yunongxi fault, a branch fault in the hinterland of the Yalong River thrust belt. The second part of the data is from the Jinping Shan-Muli fault, a branch of the Yalong River thrust belt, including apatite and zircon He ages data. The data results are concentrated, which well constrain the evolution of the Yalong River thrust belt and provide a high-quality chronological basis for exploring its role in the process of plateau expansion.

Data file naming and use method

The naming of data is based on the corresponding relationship between the samples and its elevation. The highest elevation sample code is 1, and the abbreviation of the vertical profile name is added. For example, lth-1 indicates the highest elevation sample of the Lietahu profile. The sample codes of different dating systems are the same, but they will be listed separately in different tables. Profile samples are mainly used to define the overall trend of age results. It is normal for individual samples out of the age-elevation relationship. Therefore, in the process of data use, we should try to avoid using drift data only.
