[1] The eastern Himalaya is characterized by a region of granulites and local granulitized eclogites that have been exhumed via isothermal decompression from lower crustal depths during the India-Asia collision. Spatially, most of these regions are proximal to the South Tibetan detachment system, an orogen-parallel normal-sense detachment system that operated during the Miocene, suggesting that it played a role in their exhumation. Here we use geoand thermochronological methods to study the… CONTINUE READING
