Palaeomagnetic constraints on Greater India's underthrusting of the Tibetan Plateau

  title={Palaeomagnetic constraints on Greater India's underthrusting of the Tibetan Plateau},
  author={Douglas K. Bingham and Chris T. Klootwijk},
A minimum estimate of the magnitude of Greater India's underthrusting along the Main Central Thrust beneath its former leading edge and beneath the Tibetan Plateau to the north is reported here. A comparison of newly obtained late Palaeozoic and Mesozoic palaeomagnetic results from the Tibetan Sedimentary Series (Thakkhola Graben, north central Nepal) with results from the Indian subcontinent indicates an excess anticlockwise rotational movement of Greater India with respect to its former… 
Paleobiogeographic Perspectives on the Origin of the Platyrrhini
This chapter will explore the various hypotheses and scenarios that have been advanced concerning the paleobiogeographic source of origin of the Platyrrhini. The specific questions to be addressed
More frequent glacier-rock avalanches in Sedongpu gully are blocking the Yarlung Zangbo River in eastern Tibet
Increasingly frequent glacier-rock avalanches (GRAs) – events triggered by the detachment of both glacier and rock materials – have occurred in recent years in the Sedongpu gully in the eastern

In the unusual event offailure to remove a foreign body with a bronchoscope, a thoracotomy will be necessary; bronchotomy, segmental resection, or lobectomy may be necessary. Complications of inhaled


India's and Australia's pole path since the late Mesozoic and the India–Asia collision
The Indian apparent polar wandering path (APW) for the late Mesozoic–Cenozoic period has been too poorly defined to use as a constraint to establish the timing of collision of India and Asia. Here we
Tibetan, Variscan, and Precambrian Basement Reactivation: Products of Continental Collision
Extensive terranes of basement reactivation are interpreted as resulting from crustal thickening following continental collision. It is suggested that terranes, such as the Grenville Province and
The northwestern termination of the Himalayan Mountain Front: Active tectonics from microearthquakes
The seismicity of the northwestern Himalayan syntaxial bend and the geologically complex area to the west, between the Hazara thrust system (HTS) and the higher mountains of Indus-Kohistan, is
Spreading history of the eastern Indian Ocean and Greater India's northward flight from Antarctica and Australia
Recent information from magnetic surveys and from deep-sea drilling allows Sclater and Fisher's Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic reconstructions of the eastern Indian Ocean to be extended back almost to
The Evolution of the Indian Ocean since the Late Cretaceous
Summary All available ship and aeroplane tracks across the Indian Ocean were searched for identifiable magnetic anomalies and transform faults, and hence the age and direction of motion at the
Tectonic models of the Tibetan plateau
Tectonic models proposed for the origin of the Tibetan plateau and surrounding regions all have some inadequacies, but models involving underthrusting continental lithosphere of India beneath the
