The Southeast Tibet lake district is the largest on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, with a drainage area of 469,000 km2 • There are two lakes with areas greater than 100 km 2; namely the famous Yamzho Yumco (649 km 2) and Puma Yumco (295 km 2), which are located on the southwestern remnant of plateau surface and account for 63% of the total area of lakes in the district. Both of the lakes are early stage outflow lakes formed by local blocking on the plateau surface.

Hence, these basins mainly occur as superimposed basins developed on Tertiary sedimentary basins extending in a nearly east-west direction. These basins are largely controlled by E-W compressional structures, with thrust faults commonly observed in the north and overlaps or down warps often occurring in the south (Fig. 6). , 1983). Three lake basin series can generally be distinguished from north to south, namely; the Hoh XiI lake basin (I), Bangong Co-Siting Co lake basin series (IT), and the Yarlung Zangbo lake basin series (ill) (Figs.
