Subject index. Fossil index. From the Foreword The present two volumes provide an exhaustive and commendable synthesis of Indian geology covering the major recent advances. They have thereby generated perhaps the almost up to date and authentic publication on the subject now available. The authors have taken to a central path in areas of modeling diversity. Most evolutionary models find a mention in the text. Areas of geophysics and geochemistry are emphasized but the main focus is on structure tectonics stratigraphy and the geological milieu. Though the Global stratigraphic scale is broadly followed formations are described keeping in view their spatial and temporal continuity. Such a presentation has the merit of ensuring a wholesome picture of the geological history behind each of these geological entities which will be lost when mutilated into the various systems in the international scale. The book presents a selected bibliography that lists most of the significant contributions. The authors are constrained to be brief in several sections due to limitations of space. A comprehensive treatise the book would prove to be an up to date source of information on Indian continental geology. Printed Pages: Vol. 1, 556p Vol. 2, 428p. Seller Inventory # 041037

Cenozoic Sedimentation. 13. The Siwalik and related Sedimentation. 14. Tectonic evolution of Indian sub-continent. Appendices. Historical Geology of India is a text book for graduate and post-graduate students of geology, geophysics and other earth sciences for Indian Universities. It also caters to the universities of USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada as one or two credit courses on regional studies are included in the curriculum. Besides it can be useful to professional geologists and geophysicists working on various projects in India. The book has been specially designed to cover the course content of major Indian Universities and the approved syllabi of the University Grants Commission. This book has not been written in the classical style of what is where and when was it formed; instead there has been an attempt to base the entire history on the time control as available from latest data on high resolution stratigraphy through fossil content, radiometric dating and palaeomagnetic studies. There is a special focus on the tectonic history of the entire subcontinent through time from Precambrian times to present day. (jacket). Seller Inventory # 121587

About this Item: Scientific Publisher, 2018. Hardcover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: 1. Preface. 2. List of Formations. 3. Description of Formations. 4. List of Tables. 5. List of fossils with their occurrences and fossils groups. 6. List of fossiliferous formations with their fossils. 7. List of fossil groups pertaining to this book. 8. Details of the fossil groups. 9. List of fossils as per the fossil groups. 10. List of fossiliferous formations. The book is in the form of a ready reference. The subject matter of stratigraphy is full of names of formations, groups, etc. At times when we need to know about a certain formation for which we do not know the exact stratigraphic position, then we have to search the entire book, page by page, which becomes quite irritating and time consuming. To overcome this problem, the idea of arranging the different formations in an alphabetic order occurred to the author. During this process it was seen that many small formations, which are otherwise important, do not get their due representation, because they lie in company or association with much larger formations. Otherwise also stratigraphy is nothing but an orderly and chronological arrangement of different formations. In other words, we can say that stratigraphy is a language by itself, where different formations are its words. Same is the case with large number of fossils occurring in different formations. In the usual literature on the subject, it is practically impossible to find in what formation or formations a particular fossil occurs and to which fossil group it belongs. Alphabetical arrangement of fossils as shown in the list of fossils will help students and scholars to persue their task in an easier and quicker way. To arrange such a large number of fossils in an alphabetical order and to find their fossil groups was really a tough job. Still the author does not claim that all the formations and fossils occurring in the Indian stratigraphy are included in this book, and it cannot be the last word on the subject. This is more true in case of fossils, where unlimited literature is available. (jacket). Seller Inventory # 121609

Geological history of Rajasthan. References. Subject index. Rajasthan is amongst the very few regions in the world, which have well-preserved records of a continuous geological history from the Middle Archaean to the present day. This across-the-board volume is based on the critical analyses of the voluminous and the most recent database on the protracted geological history of the terrain. Considered as the paradise of Indian geology, the region is central to the understanding of geology of the Precambrian Indian shield and Phanerozoic cover successions. The book is also amongst the most illustrative treatise on the geology of a region published in recent years. It contains 350 figures (including a large number of photographs) of which there are no fewer than 93 geological maps of the key regions. Besides, the book contains the most recently revised large-sized coloured geological map of the State of Rajasthan. Seller Inventory # 116952

Eastern Persia. An Account Of The Journeys: GOLDSMID, Sir Frederic

About this Item: London: Macmillan & Co., 1876, 1876. 2 volumes, octavo (220 x 148 mm). Recent half calf by Trevor Lloyd, red and green contrasting labels, flat bands with single rule, double fillet panels to compartments, arabesque corner-pieces, central lozenge tool, marbled sides, top edge gilt. A narrow tidemark of hygroscopic damping at the head of the frontispiece of volume II, image unaffected, light browning to the text and plates in general, but overall a clean set, handsomely bound. Volume I with steel-engraved frontispiece and chromolithographic plate, 3 folding coloured maps, illustration and genealogical tables to the text; volume II, hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, heightened with gum arabic, printed by Mintern Bros. after drawings by Keulemans and 17 other similar plates, birds and mammals, together with 10 other uncoloured plates of reptiles after G. H. Ford, illustrations to the text, folding coloured map. First edition of this highly important account of the region compiled from the records kept by the members of the Commission sent to establish the delimitation of the disputed border between Persia and Baluchistan. Goldsmid, the commissioner, had established a reputation for himself as an officer of considerable intelligence and resource. While serving in the first Opium War (1840-1) as a soldier of the army of the East India Company, Goldsmid had begun studying oriental languages "for which he showed a marked faculty" (ODNB). He was subsequently involved in the settlement of the annexation of Sind; attached to the Turkish contingent in the Crimea, "and during the [Indian] mutiny he distinguished himself in various dangerous missions." In 1861 "he was assigned to the Indo-European Telegraph project, the purpose of which was to construct a telegraph line from British India, along the coast of Persia and what is now Pakistan, then through central Persia and Asia Minor to connect with the European network at Constantinople" (Howgego), in 1865 succeeding Colonel Patrick Stewart, on his death, as director general. Having successfully negotiated the intricacies of the required treaties, he "personally superintended the construction of the telegraph line across the whole extent of Persia" leaving "a characteristically modest account of his adventures" (ODNB). When the government of India's attention was drawn to the "political revolutions in the lands of the immediate neighbours on the West" (Goldsmid's Introduction), his experience of the territory and superior negotiating skills made him the obvious choice as boundary commissioner for the delimitation of this disturbed borderland. "His award was eventually accepted by the shah's government. In the same year Goldsmid was entrusted with the even more delicate task of investigating the claims of Persia and Afghanistan to the province of Sistan. The arbitral award was published at Tehran on 19 August 1872; Persia was confirmed in the possession of Sistan, while a section of the Helmand was left in Afghan territory. The impartiality of the award satisfied neither party, but it had the desired effect of keeping the peace. Goldsmid was created a KCSI in 1871, and received the thanks of the government of India." A significant contributor to the geographical section was Major Oliver B. St John, whose "maps of Persia and Persian Baluchistan remained for decades the standard authority" and who also assisted W. T. Blanford in the zoological and geological portion of the work, a survey commended by the Encyclopaedia Britannica for its "great care and minuteness." An excellent set of this model regional survey.
