Thermal history of Early Jurassic eclogite facies metamorphism in the Nagaland Ophiolite Complex, NE India: New insights into pre-Cretaceous subduction channel tectonics within the Neo-Tethys

Eclogite from two locations in a fossil accretionary complex now exposed in Nagaland, NE India, at the northern end of the Indo-Myanmar ranges, provides the oldest evidence for Neo-Tethyan subduction along the YarlungTsangpo suture zone. Metamorphic texture, mineral composition, peak metamorphic P-T estimates, reconstructed metamorphic P-T paths, and U–Pb zircon ages from three eclogite samples collected near Mokie and Thewati villages collectively reveal snapshots of a c. 205–172 Ma...[Show more]
