The North Potwar Deformed Zone (NPDZ) is part of the active foreland fold-and-
thrust belt of the Salt Range and Potwar Plateau (SR/PP) in northern Pakistan.
About 500 km of seismic reflection profiles are integrated with surface geologic and
drilling data to examine the structure of the NPDZ, in general,...
The Salt Range and Potwar Plateau of northern Pakistan are part of
the thin-skinned, active thrust system related to the ongoing collision of
the Asian and Indian continental blocks. Platform rocks and orogenic
molasse of the Indo-Pakistani shield are deformed in south-verging thrusts
and folds, relative to a northward-converging basement....
The Salt Range is clearly the active participant in the scenario of the progressive southward migration of the Himalayan thrust front. It extends approximately 180 km ENE along strike and is underlain by salt. This is manifested by its very narrow (<1°) cross-sectional taper and great (150 km) width. Integration...
The Salt Range and Potwar Plateau are part of the currently active
foreland fold-thrust belt of the Himalaya in Pakistan. Seismic reflection data have been combined with surface mapping, drillhole and
paleomagnetic information to construct balanced structural cross-sections of the current frontal thrust zone (Salt Range), and to estimate
