After collision contractions in the suture zone
accommodate by transpression shear zone (Mohajjel and Rasouli, 2014).
As Ga'erqiong is about 300km away from the Yarlung-Zangbo Suture Zone
, it's still lack of enough evidence so far to prove that the formation of intermediate-acid rock in Ga'erqiong is related to oceanic-ridge subduction of Neo-Tethys in early stage of Late Cretaceous.
Caption: Crackdown a crack in Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf grew roughly 20 kilometers in 2014, ripping through a suture zone
of soft marine ice that usually resists fracturing.
Terranes are thus defined by distinct paleontological, stratigraphic, structural, metamorphic, and igneous histories, but suture zones
are commonly manifested solely as faults.
The melange marks the suture zone
of the Boundary Mountain and Gander terranes (Boone and Boudette 1989) (Fig.
and Trommsdorff, V.: 1982, Magmatism and metamorphism in the Ladakh Himalayas, the Indus-Tsangpo Suture Zone
. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 60, 253-292.
Different kind correlation of these faults with structures can caused various type of deformation in Sistan suture zone
The northern part of the area was separated from the southern part by a prominent E-W lineament expressed on Bouguer and isostatic residual gravity maps Such extensive gravity gradients mark regional crustalscale subsurface structures considered suture zones
between two of the crust's block.
Kohistan Island Arc (KIA), a cretaceous arc has developed as a result of intra oceanic subduction of Tethys Ocean and separated from the Indian plate by Indus suture zone
. Rock samples from Charbagh to Madyan area Swat were collected for petrography, geochemisty and geochronology to investigate the age relationships with the eastern extension in Pakistan.
The T-T zone is located in the Central portion of the Trans-European Suture Zone
The studied samples represent rocks of the Indus Suture Zone
exposed in Bajaur agency, northwestern Pakistan.
In NW Pakistan, the ophiolites mark the suture zone
between the Indian plate and Afghan plate.
