Combined thermobarometry and geochronology of peraluminous metapelites from the Karakoram metamorphic complex, North Pakistan; New insight into the tectonothermal evolution of the Baltoro and Hunza Valley regions

Abstract:

Petrographic analysis of peraluminous metapelites from two separate regions of the Karakoram metamorphic complex, North Pakistan, has produced new insights into the P-T evolution of the deep crust along the south Asian margin before and after the India-Asia collision. Average PT estimates and pseudosection construction in the (MnNCKFMASHTO) system using THERMOCALC have provided prograde and peak metamorphic conditions and UPb geochronology of metamorphic monazite has provided age constraints....
