  • Mike Searle: The Formation Of The Himalayas

    the rocks of the Annapurna sanctuary, and the presence of rocks with fossils of sea life at the peak of everest. In 1984, Searle and others went on an expedition to do mapping and collect rock samples around the Baltoro glacier and K2. They spent about three months on expedition around this area. Searle collected and sent off about 200 kg of rock samples on this expedition. To Searles excitement, the majority of the rocks collected were metamorphic rocks. Tests indicated that some of the rocks were formed at extremely high pressures. Because they were under such high pressures the rocks collected had at some point undergone partial melting, or migmatization. Most of the peaks along the mountain range they were in were composed of this type of granite. This was astonishing because these rocks had at some point been in the deepest levels of the Asian plate crust. Through the formation of these mountains, rocks had gone from being 30-70 km below the surface, to being thousands of meters above the surface. I find this information especially interesting because I am fascinated by the fact that the rocks at some of the highest points on our planet were once extremely deep in our planet 's crust. The evidence found by Searle give a better idea of where exactly some of these rocks came from. In 1992, Searle got a chance to study the rocks of the Annapurna Range. He went on a long field trip with Kip Hodges of MIT to the Modi Khola, a deep valley in the Annapurna area. This…
