Active tectonics of the eastern Himalaya: New constraints from the first tectonic geomorphology study in southern Bhutan
Tho Berthet et al., Gosciences Montpellier, UMR5243, Universit Montpellier 2, Place E. Bataillon, 34095 Montpellier, France. Published online 31 Mar. 2014; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/G35162.1.

The Himalayan arc, which extends more than 2500 km along the plate boundary between Indian and Eurasian plates, has experienced three great earthquakes during the last century. However the seismic behavior of the Bhutan region is unknown, because it corresponds to the only portion of the arc where no evidence of major earthquakes has been reported. In this study, the first of its kind in Bhutan, the analysis of offset fluvial terraces shows that two major earthquakes ruptured the Himalayan frontal thrust during the last millennium, and that a comparable rate of Holocene deformation (~20 mm/yr) is accommodated across the Himalaya in Bhutan as in central Nepal. This suggests that the propensity for great earthquakes in Bhutan is similar to what is observed in neighboring portions of the Himalaya arc.


The role of continental lithosphere metasomes in the production of HIMU-like magmatism on the northeast African and Arabian plates
Tyrone O. Rooney et al., Department of Geological Sciences, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824, USA. Published online 31 Mar. 2014; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/G35216.1.

This paper by Tyrone O. Rooney and colleagues presents geochemical results on the first highly silica under-saturated lavas ever discovered in the Ethiopian Large Igneous Province. These well-characterized lavas represent a heretofore hypothesized but unproven mantle end-member located within the regional lithospheric mantle. T
