Abstract

Preliminary results of paleomagnetic measurement of the Tansen Group ranging from late Paleozoic to early Cenozoic in age in west central Nepal are consistent with already-known paleomagnetic data from Indo-Pakistan and southern side of the Yarlung Zangbo River. The essential paleolatitudes obtained from the paleomagnetic data increase gradually towards the upper horizon in the Tansen Group.
