AbstractDetailed investigations along the Yarlung Tsangpo suture zone, Tibet result in the following conclusions. (1) Arc, forearc, and subduction complex elements of at least one intra-oceanic island arc which once lay within Tethys and accreted to India prior to its collision with Asia are preserved within the suture. (2) Collision-related tectonic mélange is widespread. (3) Temporally distinct conglomeratic molasse units were developed; they are related to different collision events. (4) Improved radiolarian fossil data place constraints on timing of the development of intra-oceanic terranes and mélange formation. (5) A simple unconformable contact occurs between Upper Oligocene-Lower Miocene conglomerates and the southern Lhasa terrane; the so-called south-directed "Gangdese thrust" does not exist. These new results suggest the former existence of an intra-oceanic subduction system within Tethys and indicate that considerable revision of existing models for the evolution of the Yarlung Tsangpo suture zone is required.
