Introduction to Tectonics and Structural Geology: Indian Context

  • Soumyajit MukherjeeEmail author
Chapter
Part of the Springer Geology book series (SPRINGERGEOL)

Abstract

This edited volume brings 16 research papers from both academia and industry. Readers without any instructors, especially students (in some unfortunate cases), are requested to go through few recent books on structural geological and tectonic principles and Indian case studies.
