Well, here is an article to prove those assumptions false.
From Marvel writers, to producers, and actors, UC Santa Cruz has them all.
New evidence from an eight-year study by US and Chinese researchers indicates that the plateau rose in stages, with uplift occurring first in the central plateau and later in regions to the north and south.
The Himalayan region remained below sea level while central region rose, geologists say. and Chinese researchers indicates that the plateau rose in stages, with uplift occurring first in the central plateau and later in regions to the north and south.
Known as "the roof of the world," the Tibetan Plateau was created by the ongoing collision of tectonic plates as India plows northward into Asia.
Coauthor Robert Coe, a professor of Earth and planetary sciences at UCSC, said ideas about how the uplift of the plateau occurred have been evolving since well before his first visit to Tibet in 1988.
"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.
