  • International Deep Profiling of Tibet and the Himalaya (INDEPTH) deep reflection data in the Yangbajain-Damxung graben of southern Tibet yield evidence of magmatism and deformation beneath the southern Lhasa terrane and Yarlung-Zangbo suture. Shallow reflections and low-velocity first arrivals indicate a thin, Quaternary graben fill of generally less than a few hundred meters thickness. Underlying stratified reflections, extending to a maximum of about 11.5 km depth, likely originate from… CONTINUE READING
