Arakan Coastal Ranges in Western Myanmar, geology and provenance of Neogene siliciclastic sequences: implications for the tectonic evolution of the Himalaya–Bengal System

Published on 2017-08-23T15:25:54Z (GMT) by
Neogene clastic sequences preserved in the western part of Indo-Burma Ranges provide detrital information that document the erosional and unroofing history of the eastern Himalayas and the Burmese Arc during the Indian–Asian collision. All of the sedimentological and provenance data link the syntectonic sedimentation and sequential evolution of the Bengal Basin, a remnant ocean basin south of the eastern Himalayas and, at the time of formation, a palaeo-incised valley in the eastern trough of the Central Myanmar Tertiary Basin. To the east lies the Sagaing Fault and the Mogok Belt, and further east the Shan–Thai Block.
