Abstract

Evidence from the eastern Indian Ocean implies a Greater India in Gondwanaland. Translated without distortion to Asia, the northeast part of Greater India is found to correspond in shape with the Tibetan Plateau. With geophysical evidence, this suggests that the northeast part of Greater India underlies, presumably by underthrusting, the Tibetan Plateau.
