Abstract

The AA. report new field observations on stratigraphy, sedimentology, and geochemical data of plutonic rocks of the Shyok suture zone separaring the Ladakh terane to the SW from the Karakoram terrane to the NE. Six tectonic units have been distinguished. The AA. outline the geology along a transect in the Nubra-Shyok river valleys. They describe a thick sedimentary-volcanic succession yielding Middle Cretaceous foraminifera. They also discuss the tectonic implications for regional correlation and comparison with the better investigated areas of northern Kohistan
