Abstract

The Tabei Uplift in the northern Tarim Basin, the Tadong Depression in the eastern Tarim Basin, and the Tarim Central Uplift were formed as a result of mantle diapirism. Four stages in the geological development of this area can be recognized: an initial "embryonic" stage in the late Proterozoic; a "formational" stage in the Sinian; a "developmental" stage in the Early to mid-Palaeozoic; and a "completion" stage in the late Palaeozoic.
