Carter, Andrew and Najman, Yani and Bahroudi, Abbas and Bown, Paul and Garzanti, Eduardo and Lawrence, Robert D. (2010) Locating earliest records of orogenesis in the western Himalaya : evidence from the paleogene sediments in the Iranian Makran and Pakistan Katawaz basin. Geology, 38 (9). pp. 807-810. ISSN 1943-2682Full text not available from this repository.
A combination of sediment petrography, detrital zircon U-Pb, and fission-track dating is used to show that provenance of the Paleogene sedimentary rocks exposed in the Makran region of southern Iran and the Katawaz basin of Pakistan is consistent with a source from the nascent western Himalaya and associated magmatic arc. Results from this important archive show that Paleogene erosion was focused mainly on the arc and northern Indian margin, and, in contrast to the east-central Himalaya, we have not detected widespread rapid exhumation indicative of strong forcing by climate-driven erosion at that time.
