    A Late Miocene-Pliocene origin for the Central Himalayan inverted metamorphism T. Mark Harrison a3*, F.J. Ryerson b, P. Le Fort ‘, An Yin a, Oscar M. Lovera a, Tibetan Slab (= Greater Himalayan Crystallines) The South Tibetan Detachment System, Himalayan Orogen: Extension contemporaneous with and. In order to understand the structural complexity of the Himalaya orogen, understanding the South Tibet detachment is critical to figuring out the exact time and processes .

    The South Tibetan detachment system (STDS) in the Himalayan orogen is an example of normal-sense displacement on an orogen-parallel shear zone during lithospheric contraction. Here, in situ monazite U(-Th)-Pb geochronology is combined with metamorphic pressure and temperature estimates to constrain pressure-temperature-time (P-T-t >) paths for both the hangingwall and footwall rocks of . Abstract The metamorphic core of the Himalayan orogen, or Greater Himalayan sequence, is a northward tapering prism bound at the bottom by a N dipping family of thrust faults (the Main Central thrust system) and at the top by a N dipping family of normal faults (the South Tibetan detachment system).

    Rocks from the South Tibetan Detachment shear zone, illustrating the typical fabrics. The first set (E03 and ME samples) are from Mount Everest, where the shear zone is ~m thick, and the rocks are dominated by semipelitic or metapelitic clastic sediments. The second series (KA samples, John Cottle thesis) is from the Dzakaa Chu, 50 km NE of Mt Everest, where the shear zone is ~m wide. STD - South Tibetan Detachment. Looking for abbreviations of STD? It is South Tibetan Detachment.

The best-studied system of syn-contractional LANFs is the South Tibetan detachment system, a network of low-angle normal sense faults and shear zones that formed coevally with and parallel to south-vergent thrusts during lithospheric shortening accompanying development of the Himalayan orogen.
