Comment on ‘‘Dextral transpression and late-Eocene magmatism in the trans-Himalayan Ladakh Batholith (North India): implications for tectono-magmatic evolution of the Indo-Eurasian collisional arc’’

Journal Article


Abstract


  • We would like to congratulate Sen and Collins (2012) for

    producing a detailed study of the structural history of the

    Ladakh Batholith according to new LA-ICPMS U/Pb

    analyses of zircon and AMS measurements. This work

    provides some significant findings to the evolution of this

    part of the Himalaya. However, we wanted to draw the

    author’s attention to the omission of a discussion of other

    geochronological results from the region (White et al.

    2012). This is because the results are particularly

    important for understanding the India–Asia collision. We

    also raise concerns about some of the conclusions that

    were drawn from AMS measurement in regard to postcrystallization

    deformation of the Ladakh Batholith

    granitoids.
