Historical

The volume consists of modern researches on the Himalayan Mountain Geology by eminent and active geoscientists of India and abroad. The formation of the Himalaya is a result of collision tectonics and the rock-material from the deep interior was exhumed for about 40 km and was horizontally transported for about 200 km along the Main Central Thrust. Historically the development of Himalayan geoglogy was adversely affected due to world War I and II but notable contributions were made when India became independent. Two layers of Siwalik sediments underlie the alluvium: the upper Siwalik-1000m and lower Siwalik 4000m.
