Integrated tectonostratigraphic analysis of the Himalaya and implications for its tectonic reconstruction
The isotope geochronology of isochronously deposited Cambrian strata from different tectonostratigraphic zones of the Himalaya confirms new stratigraphic, sedimentological, and faunal evidence indicating that the Himalaya was a single continental margin prior to collision of India with Asia. Lesser, Greater, and Tethyan Himalaya represent proximal to distal parts of a passive continental margin that has been subsequently deformed during Cenozoic collision of India with Asia. Detrital zircon and...[Show more]
