AbstractTectonic activity and climate change are regarded as two important driving forces on the evolution of large-scale drainage. The evolution of the Irtysh River and Ulungu River, two large-scale drainage systems in the northern Junggar Basin, can provide a key constraint on the uplift of the Altai Mountains and Central Asian aridification. However, we know little about the evolution of these two large-scale rivers. This study presents new detrital zircon U-Pb data from the late Oligocene to late Miocene sedimentary sequences and modern river sediments to reconstruct Cenozoic paleo-drainage evolution in the northern Junggar Basin. The detrital zircon U Pb results show a single major population at 460-360 Ma, which is mainly derived from the Altai Mountains, for late Oligocene and early Miocene sequences, but two populations at 460-360 Ma and 340-200 Ma, which are mainly from the Altai Mountains and East Junggar terrane, for middle and late Miocene sequences. Our provenance study argues that the Irtysh River and Ulungu River in their modern extent did not exist prior similar to 18 Ma when the Altai Mountains allowed southward-flowing rivers to transport sediments into the inner Junggar Basin directly. The provenance shift in northern Junggar Basin at 17-18 Ma represents the progressive drainage expansion of the Ulungu River, evolving from relatively small rivers confined to the eastern Junggar Basin to a near-modern large-scale drainage system, due to the rapid uplift in the East Junggar terrane and eastern Altai Mountains in early Miocene. After similar to 6 Ma, the Irtysh River experienced a progressive drainage expansion, captured the southward-flowing tributaries of the Ulungu River and formed modern drainage pattern. Our study supports the initiation of exhumation before late Oligocene and a local tectonic uplift in early Miocene in Altai Mountains, which imply a complex deformation process in the Central Asia.
