Tectonic evolution of the early Mesozoic blueschist-bearing Qiantang metamorphic belt, central Tibet

Kapp, Paul; Yin, An; Manning, Craig; Harrison, Timothy; Taylor, Michael; Ding, Lin


A >500-km-long east-west trending metamorphic belt in the Qiangtang terrane of central Tibet consists of tectonic melange that occurs in the footwalls of Late Triassic-Early Jurassic domal low-angle normal faults. The melange is comprised of a strongly deformed matrix of metasedimentary and mafic schists that encloses lesser-deformed blocks of metabasites, Carboniferous-Triassic metasedimentary rocks, and early Paleozoic gneiss. Both the blocks and melange matrix exhibit greenschist,...[Show more]
