Chronology of deformation, metamorphism, and magmatism in the southern Karakoram Mountains

Abstract:

U-Pb dating of metamorphic and igneous rocks from the Hunza Valley and Baltoro regions of the Karakoram Mountains in northern Pakistan addresses the thermal and magmatic evolution of the thickened Asian plate crust before, during, and after the collision of the Kohistan arc and the Indian plate. Crustal thickening and high-temperature, sillimanite-grade metamorphism in the southern Karakoram Mountains followed the collision and accretion of the Kohistan are during the Late Cretaceous. U-Pb ag...
