Karakoram fault zone rocks cool in two phases

Abstract:

The Karakoram fault zone of Ladakh, India, is a major strike-slip boundary along which the tectonic evolution of Tibet has been accommodated. In this paper 40Ar/39Ar isotopic age data are integrated with structural and metamorphic data to infer an exhumation history for granites and low- to intermediate-grade metamorphic rocks exposed adjacent to two strands of the fault zone. Near Tangtse, leucogranites which crystallized c. 17 Ma ago are cut by the Karakoram fault zone, indicating that faul...
