Special Publication 412

The Himalaya–Karakoram–Tibet orogenic system was produced by the India–Asia collision c. 55 Ma ago. Understanding the HKT system is crucial in clarifying the evolution of ancient and recent orogens. The aim of this Special Publication is to document recent developments and hot topics in HKT tectonics.
