Abstract

The Andaman Flysch of Oligocene age comprises basinal-scale deposits of marine turbidites from an axially fed submarine fan. It is intermittently exposed across the entire chain of the Andaman–Nicobar Islands from the northernmost tip of North Andaman to the southernmost part of Great Nicobar. This chapter reviews the field and petrographic attributes, heavy mineral assemblages, major and trace elements, and isotope geochemistry of the most accessible outcrops on the main Andaman islands.
