Timing of India‐Asia collision: Geological, biostratigraphic, and palaeomagnetic constraints
[1] A range of ages have been proposed for the timing of India-Asia collision; the range to some extent reflects different definitions of collision and methods used to date it. In this paper weExpand

Petrology of Indus River sands : a key to interpret erosion history of the Western Himalayan Syntaxis
The Indus River has been progressively transformed in the last decades into a tightly regulated system of dams and channels, to produce food and energy for the rapidly growing population of Pakistan.Expand

Petrology of Nile River sands (Ethiopia and Sudan): Sediment budgets and erosion patterns
Abstract Detrital modes of modern Nile sands, together with estimates of sediment volumes trapped in Sudanese reservoirs, allow us to calculate sediment loads of major tributaries (Blue Nile, WhiteExpand

Mineralogical and chemical variability of fluvial sands. 1 Bedload sand (Ganga-Brahmaputra. Bangladesh).
This study investigates the natural processes that control concentration of detrital minerals and consequently chemical elements in river sand. The novelty of our approach consists in the systematicExpand

The Paleogene record of Himalayan erosion: Bengal Basin, Bangladesh
A knowledge of Himalayan erosion history is critical to understanding crustal deformation processes, and the proposed link between the orogen's erosion and changes in both global climate and oceanExpand

Settling equivalence of detrital minerals and grain-size dependence of sediment composition
Abstract This study discusses the laws which govern sediment deposition, and consequently determine size-dependent compositional variability. A theoretical approach is substantiated by robustExpand

Provenance of the Tertiary sedimentary rocks of the Indo-Burman Ranges, Burma (Myanmar): Burman arc or Himalayan-derived?
The Indo-Burman Ranges in western Myanmar extend along the Sunda Arc subduction zone and may be divided into a western portion of Neogene sedimentary rocks and an eastern portion of PalaeogeneExpand

Grain-size dependence of sediment composition and environmental bias in provenance studies
Abstract This article investigates both experimentally and theoretically the compositional changes associated with textural effects and hydraulic sorting during sediment transport and deposition,Expand

Sand petrology and focused erosion in collision orogens: the Brahmaputra case
Abstract The high-relief and tectonically active Himalayan range, characterized by markedly varying climate but relatively homogeneous geology along strike, is a unique natural laboratory in which toExpand

The Cimmerian geopuzzle: new data from South Pamir
Based on its Permian-Triassic stratigraphic and biotic evolution, we correlate the SE Pamir to the Karakoram terrane, and we consider them equivalent, along with the Central Pamir, to the QiantangExpand
