Paleomagnetic results of Cretaceous strata in Nepal

The development of the southern piedmont of the Himalayan margin and its depositional setting have changed since the tectonic uplift of the Himalaya due to the continental collision of India with Asia, in which the marine- and terrestrial-facies sediments recorded the tectonic deformation and environmental evolution of the front edge of continental collision. To better understand the deformation mechanism of the southern Himalayan margin and constrain the continental collision age, we selected the well an exposed outcrop profile from late Cretaceous to middle Eocene strata in the western Nepal and carried on detailed paleomagnetic studies. At present, all the samples for the Butwal section with depth of 315 m had been performed on the stepwise alternating field demagnetization (AFD) with high-resolution declination and inclination.
