The collision of the Indian Plate with the Karakoram-Lhasa Blocks and the closing of Neo-Tethys along the Indus Suture Zone (ISZ) is well constrained by sedimentologic, structural and palaeomagnetic data at ca. 50 Ma. Pre-collision high P— low T blueschist facies metamorphism in the ISZ is related to subduction of Tethyan oceanic crust northwards beneath the Jurassic-early Cretaceous Dras island arc. The Spontang ophiolite was obducted south westwards onto the Zanskar shelf before the Eocene… CONTINUE READING
