Low-angle normal faults in the compressional Himalayan orogen; Evidence from the Annapurna-Dhaulagiri Himalaya, Nepal

Abstract:

The Annapurna Detachment (AD) is a lowangle (~20°-30° dip), north-dipping normal fault and ductile high-strain shear zone in calc-mylonites, and forms part of the South Tibetan Detachment (STD) that runs along 1800 km length of the Himalaya.
