Abstract: 
Based on the sedimentary and subsiding features of Kuqa foreland basin, this paper presents the following characteristics of neogene coupling relationship between kuqa Basin and southern Tien Shan Orogen, Northwestern China: (1) The southern Tien Shan Orogen underwent neogene uplifting of 4 km in height and the kuqa Basin underwent neogene subsidence of 4-6 km in depth accordingly beginning in 25 Ma; (2) The southern Tien Shan Orogen moved continuously toward the kuqa Basin, with largest structural shortening rate of greater than 53.7%, and the north boundary of the kuqa Basin retreated continuously southward accordingly since the Miocene; (3) There are two subsidence centers with high subsiding rates and large subsiding extent, located in the eastern and western kuqa Basin respectively, with the subsiding maximizing in the deposition period of Kuqa Formation.
