New paper: Discovery of a new continental high-pressure metamorphic complex in southern Tibet

Check out my new paper, entitled “High-Pressure Tethyan Himalaya rocks along the India-Asia suture zone in southern Tibet”, which was recently published in Lithosphere. This research utilized regional-scale geologic mapping, structural analysis, metamorphic petrology (including pseudosection modeling), white mica Ar-Ar geochronology, and garnet Lu-Hf geochronology to constrain the structural geometry and P-T-t path of a newly recognized high-pressure metamorphic complex. This is the first such complex recognized along the Yarlung segment of the India-Asia suture, which is geographically central to the India-Asia collision. The full citation is below:
