Fission track geochronology of India
The fission track ages of cogenetic/co-existing minerals namely garnet, muscovite and apatite from three mica beltsi.e., Bihar, Rajasthan, Nellore of peninsular India and Himalayan region, coupled with the corresponding closing temperatures of the minerals have been used to reveal the thermal and uplift histories of these regions. The data show that the extra-peninsular part of the subcontinent during Himalayan orogenic cycle (upper cretaceous-tertiary) witnessed the highest cooling and uplift rates in comparison to the older cycles in peninsular India.
