An analysis of heat discharged by thermal fluids along the c. 3000 km long Himalayan Geothermal Belt (HGB) shows that heat transfer is concentrated along 30 to 50 km wide ‘heat bands’ which are associated with at least 600 geothermal systems. The bands have been interpreted as segments of major, concentric slip lines caused by plastic deformation of the ductile crust within the Asian plate resulting from present day plate collision. Assuming that this crust behaves like an ideal plastic medium… CONTINUE READING
