...P. D. Clift; P. J. Degnan; R. Hannigan; J. Blusztajn Abstract The Nindam Formation of the Indus suture zone represents the forearc basin to the Dras-Kohistan volcanic arc, which was generated in an intraoceanic setting during mid-Cretaceous time, and accreted to the margin of Eurasia during Late...

... the Arabia/India-Asia collision (Oman, Ladakh, South Tibet, Myanmar, Andaman Islands). Tectonic-metallogenic processes in island arcs and ancient subduction complexes (VMS Cu-Zn-Pb) can be deduced from studies in the Dras-Kohistan arc (Pakistan) and the various arc complexes along the Myanmar-Andaman segment...

... of continental Asia. The Kohistan-Dras arc was the last of these blocks to be accreted to Asia. Zanchi et al. describe one of the suture zones that encompassed the southward growth of Asia during the late Mesozoic and show how the Tirich Mir Fault Zone can be described as a suture on the basis...

... landmasses across the Kohistan and Dras island-arcs and Trans-Himalayan magmatic arc. Other biogeographical models, such as “Out-of-India Dispersals” for many vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant groups, also deserve a close examination. At present, limited quantitative fossil data is available to test...

... margin have been mapped in detail and show clear evidence that obduction occurred in the late Cretaceous. At this time the Dras-Kohistan intra-oceanic arc had already collided with the southern Asian margin, over 1500 km to the north. Obduction of the Spontang ophiolite therefore records a separate...

The Mesozoic nonmarine stratigraphic record of central Xinjiang supports the hypothesis that a strong monsoonal circulation was present during Early and Middle Jurassic time, but it waned by Late Jurassic in response to the breakup of Pangea.

Finally, we compare our data with the data obtained from other well-known fossil (e.g., Alisitos and Dras-Kohistan arcs) and modern (e.g., Mariana, Izu, and Aleutian arcs) submarine volcanic arcs of the Earth; we have seen great similarities...

... on which to assess the relative merits of interpretations and models. Kohistan is a world-class natural laboratory in which to study crustal accretion processes. The most likely order of emplacement of units in time (from oldest to youngest) is: (1) oceanic-type Kamila Amphibolites; (2) arc-type Kamila...

They presented excellent new data from metavolcanic lithologies throughout the arc and convincingly argued that Pb and Sr isotopic compositions...

The best-known sequence is exposed in Kohistan and Ladakh (western Himalaya) where a series of oceanic arc lavas, volcaniclastic sedimentary rocks, and associated lower crustal and mantle rocks have been studied. Study of this Dras-Kohistan lower crust and upper...

... of the volcanic-arc ophiolite. The U–Pb age and Hf isotopic signatures for the Shyok ophiolite are similar to the Late Jurassic Matum Das tonalite within the Kohistan Arc; we therefore suggest that they are part of the same intra-oceanic island-arc system that formed in the Mesotethys Ocean prior to Late Jurassic...
