About this book

This book presents a compilation of findings, review and original works, on the tectonic evolution and structural detail of several terrains in India. It captures the tectonic diversity of the Indian terrain, including tectonics of India's coastal areas, the tectonic evolution of Gondwana and Proterozoic (Purana) basins. It also describes the research results of the Indian craton's geo-history, Tertiary Bengal basin, and also the Himalayan collisional zone. Thus the book covers the deformation history of Indian terrain involving strike slip, compressional and extensional tectonics, and ductile and brittle shear deformations.  

About the authors

Soumyajit Mukherjee is working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences, IIT Bombay, India. His research interests mainly focus on structural geology, Himalayan tectonics, extrusion modelling as well as kinematics of ductile and brittle shear zones. He has published several books, e.g., on rock deformation, shear zones and petroleum geosciences in India.
