Timing of Midcrustal Metamorphism, Melting, and Deformation in the Mount Everest Region of Southern Tibet Revealed by U(-Th)-Pb Geochronology

Abstract:

U(-Th)-Pb dating of zircon, monazite, and xenotime from metamorphic and igneous rocks at two outcrops along a north-south transect in the Mount Everest region of southern Tibet provide new constraints on the timing and duration of thermal events associated with channel flow and the ductile extrusion of the Greater Himalayan Series (GHS). At the southernmost outcrop in the Kangshung Valley, Th-Pb ages from monazite indicate that prograde metamorphism associated with crustal thickening followin...
