Normal-senseZZ shear zones in the core of the Higher Himalayan Crystallines (Bhutan Himalaya): evidence for extrusion?

Carosi, R; Montomoli, C; Rubatto, Daniela; Visonà, Dario

Description

Recent fieldwork in western Bhutan, dedicated to unravelling the tectonic structure of the mid-crustal rocks, indicates a complex deformation pattern in the Greater Himalayan Slab (GHS). A system of normal shear zones, striking NE-SW and steeply to moderately dipping to the SE, has been recognized within this extruding slab or wedge of crystalline rocks. The zones are characterized by well developed shear-sense indicators pointing to a top-down-to-SE sense of shear. The main Barrovian...[Show more]
