Late Miocene movement within the Himalayan Main Central Thrust shear zone, Sikkim, north-east India
In the Sikkim region of north-east India, the Main Central Thrust (MCT) juxtaposes high-grade gneisses of the Greater Himalayan Crystallines over lower-grade slates, phyllites and schists of the Lesser Himalaya Formation. Inverted metamorphism characterizes rocks that immediately underlie the thrust, and the large-scale South Tibet Detachment System (STDS) bounds the northern side of the Greater Himalayan Crystallines. In situ Th-Pb monazite ages indicate that the MCT shear zone in the Sikkim...[Show more]
