Overview for Seismic Imaging of the Indian Continental and Oceanic Crust
Seismic technique is the best imaging tool to bring out subtle structural variations present in the earth crust and sub crustal lithosphere. The book on 'Seismic imaging of the Indian continental and oceanic crust' is unique and useful as it contains not only details covering historical development of the seismic technique but also details of both passive and active seismic data acquisition and processing methodologies in addition to results covering both the continental and oceanic segments of the Indian crust. The details given in the book are aimed to assist young and seasoned researchers to plan and execute scientific projects that cover exploration, societal and fundamental branches of research. Inclusion of continental and oceanic results has made this book an unique presentation as the details have subtly brought into focus the inter relationship between these two segments of the Indian crust....an important input to better understand the seismotectonics of the region and the role played by the Indian plate in the assembly / breakup / reassembly of east Gondwana super continent.
