Abstract

The Tamasā (Tons) branch of the Saraswatī, springing from the Har-ki-dūn glacier in the Great Himālaya subprovince (Plate  2.4), crosses three major thrust zones—and three litho-tectonically distinctive and phyisographically contrasted terranes—before descending onto the plains in southwestern Uttarākhand.
