About the Book

Part I: Methodology with Global Examples

(Continental, Marine and Airborne-Satellite Surveys)

Part II: Integrated Exploration of Indian Plate and Resources

(Geodynamics, Seismotectonics, Hydrocarbons, Minerals, Groundwater, Environment and Engineering Sites)

Strength of this book lies in: (a) Geophysical data sets of the Indian Plate and adjoining countries and continents like Pakistan, Tibet (China), Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and Antarctica and some global examples from Germany, USA, Russia, Africa etc. (b) Connecting geodyanamics to resource exploration using same data for both in different wavebands describing from Mesoarchean (~3.0 Ga) to the present day activity in Indian free-board, Himalaya, Sumatra-Java trench, Alps, Andes etc; and (c) Vertical coherence between surface geology and basement, crustal and lithospheric structures and processes based on geophysical modeling and illustrated by innovative figures, cross-sections and maps (~ 700), several in colours. They are useful to both academia (students and teachers) and professionals (geologists and geophysicists) alike.

It also presents ways for integrated exploration for hydrocarbons, minerals, groundwater and a number of environmental issues relevant in engineering, archaeology, climate changes, impact craters and volcanoes. In this regard, exploration of ~ 20 mineralized zones of base and precious metals, uranium etc. and ~ 15 basins of Indian continent and offshore for hydrocarbon exploration are discussed in detail. It also discusses and refers ~ 10 case histories of ground water exploration in hard rock areas of India and central Africa. Besides several geodynamic studies, some major/great earthquakes like Shillong, Bhuj, New Madrid, and along the Himalayan front like Kashmir, Kangra, Sichuan, and Sumatra earthquakes and tsunami along with seismic zonation map of SAARC countries are treated extensively. The accessible style of this unique work will benefit researchers, professionals, advanced students and interested readers in Geophysics, Geology, Economic Geology, Geological Engineering, Geography, Mineralogy and related disciplines.

About the Author

Dr. Dinesh Chandra Mishra completed his M.Sc in 1963 from Banaras Hindu University (BHU) and Ph.D (Geophysics) in 1966 from BHU and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (Mumbai). After teaching tenure to M.Sc (Geophysics) in BHU, he joined the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) as a Scientist in 1968 where he continued till superannuation in 2003. During his tenure at NGRI he held various scientific and administrative positions including Director's Grade Scientist. He is currently an Emeritus Scientist at NGRI.

An accomplished and renowned scientist, Dr. Mishra has visited various countries for advanced research work and has had the privilege to attend and present his work at key conferences. During his long career of almost 50 years, he collaborated with various national and international scientists. He was also an active member of the international committee on integrated exploration programme on 'Geotransects' and Fellow of several geophysical and geological societies.

He participated and guided the airborne magnetic and ground gravity surveys of different parts of the country and was involved in preparation of country wide gravity maps for geodynamics and resource exploration integrating them with other geophysical/geological information including satellite magnetic and gravity data. A Principal Investigator and Coordinator for several integrated exploration programs in the country, Dr. Mishra has co-authored a book and published more than 150 scientific papers and about 25 technical reports on 'Integrated Exploration for Geodynamics and Resources'. He is presently actively involved in some major scientific projects from Ministry of Earth Sciences and Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.
