Preprint
In the Bhagirathi River Transect of the Garhwal Himalaya, India, the existence of the Jhala Normal Fault (JNF) and its movement sense are disputed. The JNF has been considered either as part of the South Tibetan Detachment System (STDS) or as a distinct, more southerly discontinuity within the Higher Himalayan Crystalline Sequence (HHCS). Field stu...
Article
The Ilam Nappe, consisting of the High Himalayan Crystalline Sequence (HHCS) in far-eastern Nepal, was largely emplaced southward along the Main Central Thrust (MCT). Here we present the P–T–t path of the Ilam Nappe using conventional geothermobarometers, pseudosection modelling, and monazite petrochronology. Amphibole-bearing migmatite just above...

The 'channel flow' concept is generally associated with the collisional mountain belts (such as the Himalaya) to explain the exhumation of deeper crustal materials. According to the concept, the top part of the subducting plate gets 'molten' and tries to return to the surface following the 'pipe flow' mechanism via a combination of Poiseuille-and C...
Article
The Main Central Thrust (MCT) is one of the major tectonic discontinuities stretching about ~2500 km along the length of the Himalaya and it plays important role during the tectono-metamorphic evolution of Himalayan orogen. This contribution aims to find out the element mobility and loss or gain of chemical mass during mylonitization and migmatizat...
Technical Report
The Nidar ophiolite in the Ladakh, NW India formed in supra subduction zone during the Early Cretaceous. The chemical composition of hornblende in dolerite, basalt and andesite consists mainly of hornblende and actinolite. Hornblende coexisted with clinopyroxene and formed during magma crystallization. On the other hand, actinolite, which replaces...
Article
The pattern and timing of tectonic discontinuity and partial melting in the Garhwal Himalaya, resulting from the India-Asia collision, are crucial factors for understanding the evolution of the Himalayan orogen, but these parameters remain poorly constrained. Middle-to high-grade metamorphic rocks from the Main Central Thrust (MCT) zone and the Hig...
Article
Metamorphic P–T conditions, monazite chemical ages, and zircon U–Pb ages from the gneisses exposed in the Oki belt, Japan, were integrated to unravel the multi-stage metamorphic history of the belt. Microstructural observations combined with obtained P–T conditions and metamorphic ages reveal three distinct stages of metamorphism: M1, M2, and M3. T...
Technical Report
In the Himalayan orogen, the microstructures of migmatite formed by the biotite dehydration melting were investigated. Garnet and potassium feldspar grown in equilibrium with the melt have irregularly arranged inclusions. Quartz in the matrix has a cathode luminescence (CL) zoning with grey-CL core surrounded by bright-CL rim. In contrast, quartz i...
Article
The eastern Wolhyeonri complex in the southwestern Gyeonggi Massif, South Korea, which has a close affinity with the northern margin of the South China Craton, primarily consists of Neoproterozoic igneous and sedimentary rocks that were metamorphosed by the middle Paleozoic thermal event. In this study, we present the results from thermobarometry,...

Three types of amphibolites were found around a large serpentinite body in the basement of the Ohmachi Seamount in the Izu-Bonin-Mariana arc: epidote-albite amphibolite, epidote-garnet amphibolite, and garnet-zoisite amphibolite. The epidote-albite amphibolite shows a mid-ocean ridge basalt geochemical affinity based on whole-rock chemistry and Nd...
Article
The metamorphic pressure–temperature (P–T) conditions across the Main central thrust (MCT) in the Arun area have been investigated. The MCT marks the tectono-metamorphic boundary between the overlying high-grade High Himalaya crystalline sequences (HHCS) and the underlying low-grade Lesser Himalaya sequences (LHS). The metamorphic rocks regionally...
Technical Report
Field surveys of the Tso Morari metamorphic complex in Ladakh, NW India were performed to collect ultrahigh-pressure metamorphic rocks and ophiolite igneous rocks. Garnet and omphacite are observed in the eclogite dyke in the center of the Tso Morari metamorphic complex. On the other hand, the granitic gneisses of the host rock have a remarkable de...

The Precambrian Salma eclogites on the Kola Peninsula, Russia, represent some of the oldest eclogites in the world; however, there has been much debate regarding whether the timing of their eclogite facies metamorphism is Archean (2.72–2.70 Ga) or Paleoproterozoic (1.92–1.88 Ga). New microstructural observations, pressure-temperature (P-T) analyses...
