Tectonic evolution of the Mogok metamorphic belt, Burma (Myanmar) constrained by U‐Th‐Pb dating of metamorphic and magmatic rocks
[1] The Mogok metamorphic belt (MMB) extends for over 1500 km along the western margin of the Shan-Thai block, from the Andaman Sea north to the eastern Himalayan syntaxis. Previous geochronology hasExpand
Metamorphic history of a syn-convergent orogen-parallel detachment: The South Tibetan detachment system, Bhutan Himalaya
The South Tibetan detachment system (STDS) in the Himalayan orogen is an example of normal-sense displacement on an orogen-parallel shear zone during lithospheric contraction. Here, in situ monaziteExpand
Defining the Himalayan Main Central Thrust in Nepal
An inverted metamorphic field gradient associated with a crustal-scale south-vergent thrust fault, the Main Central Thrust, has been recognized along the Himalaya for over 100 years. A major problemExpand
Timing of Midcrustal Metamorphism, Melting, and Deformation in the Mount Everest Region of Southern Tibet Revealed by U(‐Th)‐Pb Geochronology
U(‐Th)‐Pb dating of zircon, monazite, and xenotime from metamorphic and igneous rocks at two outcrops along a north‐south transect in the Mount Everest region of southern Tibet provide newExpand
Campaign-style titanite U–Pb dating by laser-ablation ICP: Implications for crustal flow, phase transformations and titanite closure
Abstract U–Pb dates of titanite from > 150 samples of chiefly quartzofeldspathic gneiss and leucosomes were measured across the Western Gneiss Region of Norway to understand deformation andExpand
Orogen-parallel extension and exhumation enhanced by denudation in the trans-Himalayan Arun River gorge, Ama Drime Massif, Tibet-Nepal
Focused denudation and mid-crustal flow are coupled in many active tectonic settings, including the Himalaya, where exhumation of mid-crustal rocks accommodated by thrust faults and low-angleExpand
Probing the depths of the India‐Asia collision: U‐Th‐Pb monazite chronology of granulites from NW Bhutan
[1] Rocks metamorphosed to high temperatures and/or high pressures are rare across the Himalayan orogen, where peak metamorphic conditions recorded in the exposed metamorphic core, the GreaterExpand
Telescoping of isotherms beneath the South Tibetan Detachment System, Mount Everest Massif
Abstract Petrologic and microstructural/crystal fabric data indicate that isotherms recorded in Greater Himalayan Series (GHS) schists and gneisses in the footwall to the South Tibetan DetachmentExpand
Crustal melt granites and migmatites along the Himalaya: melt source, segregation, transport and granite emplacement mechanisms
ABSTRACT India–Asia collision resulted in crustal thickening and shortening, metamorphism and partial melting along the 2200 km-long Himalayan range. In the core of the Greater Himalaya, widespreadExpand
Geochronology of granulitized eclogite from the Ama Drime Massif: Implications for the tectonic evolution of the South Tibetan Himalaya
[1] The Ama Drime Massif (ADM) is an elongate north-south trending antiformal feature that extends ∼70 km north across the crest of the South Tibetan Himalaya and offsets the position of the SouthExpand
