Tectonic episodicity in the greater Himalaya, NW India
The Himalaya is an orogenic welt within the Alpine-Tethyan mountain chain. The extant tectonic model for the Himalayan terrane stack entails continuous post-collisional convergence and persistent heating during burial and subsequent exhumation. An alternative hypothesis to this "continuous evolution" scenario involves episodic tectonic mode switching, a concept that has been documented in other orogens along the Alpine-Tethyan belt. This thesis therefore tests the possibility that there is...[Show more]
