I study the structural inventory, kinematics and geo-/thermochronological evolution of NE-Afghanistan. I test the model of Stübner et al. (2013a,b) which proposes the transfer of deformation from the extensional Shakhdara dome into the compressional Tadjik-Afghan-Basin by ductile crustal flow in NE-Afghanistan. The methods I use are structural mapping of the working area, petrological and microtectonic analyses of thin sections and the application of multiple thermochronometers (Apatite Fission Track, Zircon-Uranium-Lead, Argon-Argon, Uranium-Thorium-Helium).
