  Much geological research has illustrated the transition of paleoenvironmental patterns during the Cenozoic from a planetary-wind-dominant type to a monsoon-dominant type, indicating the initiation of the East Asian monsoon and inland-type aridity.However,there is a dispute about the causes and mechanisms of the transition,especially about the impact of the Himalayan/Tibetan Plateau uplift and the Paratethys Sea retreat.Thirty numerical sensitivity experiments under di_erent land-sea distributions and Himalayan/Tibetan Plateau topography conditions are performed here to simulate the evolution of climate belts with emphasis on changes in the rain band,and these are compared with the changes in the paleoenvironmental patterns during the Cenozoic recovered by geological records.The consistency between simulations and the geological evidence indicates that both the Tibetan Plateau uplift and the Paratethys Sea retreat play important roles in the formation of the monsoon-dominant environmental pattern. Furthermore,the simulations show the monsoon-dominant environmental pattern comes into being when the Himalayan/Tibetan Plateau reaches 1000-2000 m high and the Paratethys Sea retreats to the Turan Plate.……
