dc.description.abstractTwo main geodynamic processes have controlled evolution of the Himalaya, Trans-Himalayan and Karakoram terrains due to underthrusting of the Indian Plate beneath the Asian Plate: (i) accretion and subduction in the Trans-Himalayan and Karakoram Mountains along the Shyok Suture Zone (SSZ) and Indus Tsangpo Suture Zones (ITSZ), and (ii) continental collision in the Himalaya. The Shyok (SSZ) and Indus Tsangpo Suture Zones (ITSZ) mark the junction of these plates in the north and south, respectively (Ahmad et al., 2008; Jain and Singh, 2009). During the Himalayan collision tectonics, the Main Central Thrust (MCT) brought the remobilized continental crust of the Indian Plate - the Himalayan Metamorphic Belt (HMB), over the Proterozoic-Palaeozoic Lesser Himalayan sedimentary belt, which in turn, overrode the Cenozoic Sub-Himalayan belt along the Main Boundary Thrust (MBT). Subsequently, the Himalayan Frontal Thrust (HFT) carried the Sub-Himalayan foreland basin over the Indo-Gangetic Plains and links the seismicity with the overall Himalayan tectonics. © Printed in India.-
