About this book

The proposed monograph on 'Geomorphological Landscapes of India' will aim to describe and explain in simple words the geomorphological characteristics and the origin of the above-mentioned landforms and landscapes. The proposed monograph will provide the background information about the geology, climate and tectonic framework of the Indian region, as well as cover Indian climates of the present and the past. It will mainly cover the four main morphotectonic regions of India and about 15-20 distinct landforms of the Indian region as well as the major geomorphosites in India.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book published under the patronage of International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) is an invaluable gift to the geoscientific community of India in particular and to the world in general. The editor has done a meticulous job of selecting geoscientists who are eminent in their own fields and well versed with landscapes and landforms about which they have written in their respective article.” (K. N. Prudhvi Raju, Journal of the Geological Society of India, Vol. 84, 2014)
