Abstract
The Spongtang Massif is a remnant of Neotethyan ocean crust emplaced onto the Indian passive margin along the Indus-Yarlung-Tsangpo Suture in the NW Himalayan region of Ladakh. The age, tectonic evolution and timing of ophiolite obduction are critical to our understanding of the mechanisms via which entire oceans are formed, consumed and partly preserved before the onset of terminal continent-continent collisions. Geochemistry of the gabbro and...
