  • The Indus Fan records the erosion of the western Himalayas and Karakoram since India began to collide with Asia during the Eocene, ∼50 Ma. Multi-channel seismic reflection data from the northern Arabian Sea correlated to industrial well Indus Marine A-1 on the Pakistan Shelf show that sedimentation patterns are variable through time, reflecting preferential sedimentation in deep water during periods of lower sea-level (e.g., middle Miocene, Pleistocene), the diversion of sediment toward the… CONTINUE READING
