S K Garg (Author)
Synopsis
Geology, as you will read in this book, is the science of that Earth on which all of us were born and will die. It is the science of that unique planet of our solar system, which alone survives life in different forms.

Physical Geology not only deals with the past, present and future of the Earth, but also with the various physical processes that are occurring on Earth including Volcanoes and Earthquakes. It will also explain the forces that cause the formation of mountain and the shifting of continents. This subject will take your closer to teh natural beauty of this world.

Engineering Geology will cover safe and sure mining operations through the body of the Earth to extract minerals, metals and other building materials. Thorough geological subsurface invesigations would be of paramount importance in the design of all the civil engineering structures, like dams, reservoirs, bridges, buildings, harbours, etc.

This book provides comprehensive detail of the entire subject, including the historical geology and stratigraphy of India, in lucid language. It is expected to be of immense use to the students of science and engineering courses, besides being able to serve as an excellent study material for Civil Services (I.A.S.) Competition, wherein this simple and interesting subject can be offered as one of the optionals.
