... the Himalayan arc appears to be affected by gigantic tear faults cutting across the east-west-trending fold and thrust axes. The tectonic pattern suggests that these cross structures are zones of differential lateral movement within the crust related to linear features of sea-floor spreading in the Indian Ocean...

... produced gentle flow of gas in the Karachi 1 and 2 wells. In the Korangi Creek-1 well, a sandy zone in the Kirthar produced good blow and gas-cut mud on a drillstem test. To date, it is not oil or gas productive in the Southern Indus basin. However, farther north at Mari gas field, the Kirthar limestone...

Biostratigraphical data are compiled from various sections of the Sulaiman and Kirthar ranges ( Eames, 1952 ; Nagappa, 1959 ; Shah, 1977 ; Köthe et al ., 1988 ; Weiss, 1993 ; Afzal, 1996...

... (< 1.0) typical of a high-stress thrusting regime. However, higher values are seen in the Hazara syntaxis zone as well as to the northwest of the Karakoram fault, suggesting an underlying creeping tectonics. The spatial variations of δb indicate that the estimated b -values to be overall well within...

.... However, the strain is normally partitioned. In the southern Kirthar fold belt, the strike-slip component that was necessitated by the global transpressive kinematic state is localized on the Chaman fault zone; the Kirthar foreland is closer to pure compressive inversion.

... of the Kirthar margin with the Afghan Plate along the proto-Chaman Fault ( Treloar & Izatt 1993 ). This event marks the first appearance of significant westerly, fold-belt-derived clastic deposits in the Kirthar Foredeep, replacing the hitherto northerly-sourced clastic deposits. Palaeomagnetic data...

... fault-plane solutions (Molnar et al., 1973). The seismicity in the Kirthar range is relatively diffuse compared to that in the Sulaiman range. At the latter seismicity falls on or near a very sharply defined frontal fault scarp which offsets the range against the eastward extending Indus basin. A zone...
