    Abstract

    Book synopsis: The western syntaxis of the Himalaya is one of the most exciting frontiers for continental tectonic studies. The region around the mountain of Nanga Parbat has some of the highest peaks, deepest valleys and highest uplift, exhumation and erosion rates known on Earth. Surrounding regions include the Hindu Kush and Karakoram mountains (Asian plate), the Kohistan island arc and the Ladakh and Zanskar ranges of the western Himalaya (Indian plate). This volume includes 24 papers on all these regions as well as five new fold-out maps of the eastern Hindu Hush, the Spontang Ophiolite region of Ladakh, part of the west margin of the Indian Plate, the Indus syntaxis in Pakistan and the Bouguer gravity anomalies in Pakistan.
