Zircon U-Pb ages, geochemistry and isotopic characteristics of the Chu Lai granitic pluton in the Kontum massif, central Vietnam

The Chu Lai granite is widespread throughout the northern Kontum massif and is an important key in understanding the evolution of the Kontum region and its vicinity. The study presents new data on geochemistry, zircon U-Pb ages, and Nd-Hf isotopes from the Chu Lai granite which allows to constrain the Paleozoic tectonic evolution of the Kontum massif.

Latest research results on the structure of insect community in Trang An World Heritage Site in Ninh Binh

About 90 km southeast of Hanoi, Trang An scenic complex in Ninh Binh province is home to cultural quintessence and natural beauty. The typical topography of this area is limestone mountains formed in the last geological stages. The process of geological tectonics over a long time created spectacular landscapes with steep cliffs, covered with tropical evergreen forests, surrounding submerged valleys connected with countless caves and underground rivers and streams. In 2014, UNESCO recognized Trang An Landscape Complex as a World Natural and Cultural Heritage.
