In our supplementary material, we firstly list sample information in Table S1 which was dated by different methods and used in this manuscript. The other tables list U-Pb zircons (LA-LCP-MS) results, zircon (U-Th)/He, apatite (U-Th)/He and apatite fission track data. The following assumptions are made for interpreting all applied thermochronologic systems: (1) the closure isotherm was horizontal during passage of the sample through its closure temperature; (2) the exhumation path was vertical; and (3) the geothermal gradient stayed constant between the surface and the specific closure temperature.
