Imaging the Indian subcontinent beneath the Himalaya
The rocks of the Indian subcontinent are last seen south of the Ganges before they plunge beneath the Himalaya and the Tibetan plateau. They are next glimpsed in seismic reflection profiles deepExpand
Seismicity and one-dimensional velocity structure of the Himalayan collision zone: Earthquakes in the crust and upper mantle
[1] Earthquakes beneath the Himalayan collision zone occur at depths between near surface and around 100 km below sea level. After relocating earthquakes with two one-dimensional (1-D) velocityExpand
Seismic structure of the crust and the upper mantle beneath the Himalayas: Evidence for eclogitization of lower crustal rocks in the Indian Plate
[1] Variations in the seismic velocity structure of the Himalayan collision zone include significant differences between its north and south portions, with transitions in physical properties acrossExpand
Earthquake processes of the Himalayan collision zone in eastern Nepal and the southern Tibetan Plateau
SUMMARY Focal mechanisms determined from moment tensor inversion and first motion polarities of the Himalayan Nepal Tibet Seismic Experiment (HIMNT) coupled with previously published solutions showExpand
Transient slab flattening beneath Colombia
Subduction of the Nazca and Caribbean Plates beneath northwestern Colombia is seen in two distinct Wadati Benioff Zones, one associated with a flat slab to the north, and one associated with normalExpand
Receiver functions and crustal structure of the northwestern Andean region, Colombia
We used the receiver function technique to deduce crustal thickness beneath the northwestern Andean system, using data from the permanent seismic network of Colombia, combined with some of the IRISExpand
Seismological observations in Northwestern South America: Evidence for two subduction segments, contrasting crustal thicknesses and upper mantle flow
Abstract The cause of tectonic deformation in northwestern South America and its link to upper mantle structure and flow are debated. We use a combination of broadband and short period travel timeExpand
Regional provenance from southwestern Colombia fore‐arc and intra‐arc basins: implications for Middle to Late Miocene orogeny in the Northern Andes
Andean orogenic processes controlled the spatial and temporal distribution of the magmatic and sedimentary record. This contribution integrates new U/Pb zircon ages, heavy mineral analyses andExpand
