AbstractConvergent plate margins could have an immediate impact on intraplate deformation in the adjacent sedimentary basin. In the Tarim Basin, a strike-slip fault network in the Guchengxu High is adjacent to the Tethys (northern Tibetan Plateau). This paper uses high-quality 3-D seismic data to unravel the geometry and kinematics of the strike-slip fault network and the genetic relationship with the Tethys tectonics. Within the fault network, the left-lateral NNE-and ENE-oriented strike-slip faults are a result of sequential evolution rather than conjugate faults. The sub-vertical ENE-oriented strike-slip faults are widely spaced with stepping-segmented geometry in the west, whereas they are relatively clustered with larger vertical throws close to the Cherchen fault. They were interpreted as a series of the Cherchen fault-related structures due to oblique blocking of the Tazhong Uplift and block deflection. It responded to the Late Ordovician Altyn Tagh/Tarim collisional orogeny and the Cherchen fault. The NNE-oriented strike-slip faults are characterized by underlying sub-vertical faults and two layers of overlying normal faults. These NNE-oriented strike-slip faults have large transversal compressional components, commonly presenting reverse drags on both sides of the underlying sub-vertical faults. These NNE-oriented faults initiated on pre-existing discontinuities (extensional joints) and offset the ENE-oriented ones when NNW-oriented stress was transmitted to plate interiors during this Late Ordovician orogeny. Afterward, two layers of overlying normal faults formed due to dragging of the covers during the Middle Silurian-Early Carboniferous reactivation and the Late Carboniferous-Early Permian inversion, in response to subduction of the Kunlun Ocean and opening of the Paleo-Tethys Ocean, respectively. The strike-slip fault network in plate interiors evolved as immediate responses to the Tethys tectonics at plate boundaries.
