An integrated tectonothermal model for the evolution of the High Himalaya in western Zanskar with constraints from thermobarometry and metamorphic modeling

Abstract:

We present an integrated model for the tectonothermal evolution of the High Himalaya in NW Zanskar based on detailed field mapping, petrographic and microstructural analysis, thermobarometric techniques, and metamorphic modeling. Metasedimentary lithologies in the Suru valley can be correlated with the Palaeozoic-Mesozoic Tethyan shelf sediments along the north Indian continental margin in Kashmir and Ladakh, and metaigneous amphibolites correlate with Permian rift-related igneous units.
