Changing Sources of Magma Generation Beneath Intra-Oceanic Islands Arcs: An Insight From the Juvenile Kohistan\ud Island Arc, Pakistan Himalaya

Article English OPEN
Bignold, Stella; Treloar, Peter J.; Petford, Nick;
(2006)

The Kohistan arc, situated in the Pakistan Himalaya, is a Cretaceous intraoceanic island arc which was initiated during the northward movement of the Indian Plate. The arc was sutured to Asia at ca. 100 Ma. It was subsequently tilted northward when underplated by Indian... View more
