Uplift of the Tibetan Plateau is manifest not only in widespread denudation, but also by an increased deposition rate of sediment, near or far from the exhumed regions. This paper uses the stratigraphic evidence to examine the timing of the Tibetan Plateau uplift during the Pleistocene. The results indicate that the mass accumulation rate (MAR) of eolian dust increased between 1.1 and 0.9 myr ago. They associate this increase in MAR and median grain size with uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and its adjacent regions during this period
