Stratigraphy, structure, and tectonic evolution of the Himalayan fold-thrust belt in western Nepal
Regional mapping, stratigraphic study, and 40Ar/39Ar geochronology provide the basis for an incremental restoration of the Himalayan fold-thrust belt in western Nepal. Tectonostratigraphic zonationExpand

An overview of the stratigraphy and tectonics of the Nepal Himalaya
Abstract Nepal can be divided into the following five east–west trending major tectonic zones. (i) The Terai Tectonic Zone which consists of over one km of Recent alluvium concealing the Churia GroupExpand

Geochronologic and thermobarometric constraints on the evolution of the Main Central Thrust, central Nepal Himalaya
The Main Central Thrust (MCT) juxtaposes the high-grade Greater Himalayan Crystallines over the lower-grade Lesser Himalaya Formation; an apparent inverted metamorphic sequence characterizes theExpand

Slip pulse and resonance of the Kathmandu basin during the 2015 Gorkha earthquake, Nepal
The bigger they are, the harder they fall The magnitude 7.8 Gorkha earthquake hit Nepal on 25 April 2015. The earthquake killed thousands and caused great damage. Galetzka et al. determined how theExpand

Five generations of monazite in Langtang gneisses: implications for chronology of the Himalayan metamorphic core
Monazite grains from Greater Himalayan Sequence gneisses, Langtang valley, Nepal, were chemically mapped and then dated in situ via Th-Pb ion-microprobe analysis. Correlation of ages and chemistryExpand

Geologic and U-Th-Pb geochronologic evidence for early Paleozoic tectonism in the Kathmandu thrust sheet, central Nepal Himalaya
The Kathmandu thrust sheet consists of Upper Proterozoic through mid-Paleozoic rocks that were emplaced over Lesser Himalayan strata (part of India's cratonal cover) during middle to late TertiaryExpand

Records of the evolution of the Himalayan orogen from in situ Th–Pb ion microprobe dating of monazite: Eastern Nepal and western Garhwal
Abstract In situ Th–Pb monazite ages from rocks collected along two transects (the Dudh Kosi-Everest, eastern Nepal and the Bhagirathi River, Garhwal Himalaya, India) perpendicular to the MainExpand

Crustal generation of the Himalayan leucogranites
Abstract Detailed studies of the Himalayan two-mica leucogranites, such as the Manaslu pluton, indicate that they have very uniform mineralogical, petrological and structural characteristics. One canExpand
