    Additional Physical Format: Online version: Valdiya, K.S. (Khadg Singh), Geology of Kumaun Lesser Himalaya. Dehradun: Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology, This book compiles and synthesizes the post data of the Western Himalaya. The geology of Western Himalaya is described under a tectonic zone framework, and wherever necessary, different regions are discussed separately under each tectonic zone. A geological map of the Western Himalaya has been compiled on ,, scale.

      Western Himalayan Foreland Basin, India: Extensional tectonics and climate in pedo-gemorphological and sedimentary evolution of the Western Gangetic Plain, India by Balaji Bhosle (Author), B. Parkash (Author), V. Acharya (Author) & 0 more. The Siwalik foothills of the Himalaya comprise Neogene fluvial sandstones and quartzite-rich conglomerates with well-rounded clasts that were deposited in the Indo-Gangetic foreland basin and later exhumed by erosion, following uplift along the Himalayan mountain front.

The Salt Range sequence dips below the Potwar basin, which is the regime of the Siwaliks with rich vertebrate fossil content. The Lesser Himalayan Sequence (LHS), delimited to the south by the Main Boundary Thrust (MBT) with the Siwaliks on the underthrust side, is about 20–35 km wide and records low-grade metamorphism, and metamorphic intensity increases to the north and northeast.

Sedimentary Geology utilizes important current research in tectonics and sedimentation and focuses on crucial geological principles. The book covers a wide range of topics, including trace fossils, mudrocks, diagentetic structures, and seismic stratigraphy.

Contributions from chemistry, physics, and structure are drawn upon throughout the book. This book presents the results of integrated multidisciplinary studies, including geology, petrology, magmatism, geochemistry, geochronology and geophysics, of the structures and processes affecting the continental lithosphere.

These processes and their spatial and temporal evolution have major consequences on the geometry and kinematics of the India–Eurasia collision zone. These papers span the history of Himalayan research, chronology of the collision, stratigraphy, magmatic and metamorphic processes, structural geology and tectonics, seismicity, geophysics, and the evolution of the Indian monsoon.

This landmark set of papers should underpin the next 25 years of Himalayan. Among the world's Alpine-type structures, the almost km long Himalaya (Fig. ) forms a mountain range of several includes the highest peaks known on our globe (10 out of the 14 peaks above m, including Everest, m), with some of the greatest relief contrasts over very short distances, and some of the largest river outputs.

The Himalaya mountain range stretches over km (Le Forte ), and its geology directly impacts upon the people who live in the area. This report on Himalayan Geology covers its mode of formation, glaciation and quaternary geology, current tectonics and resources.

It will also outline aspects specific. Read the latest articles of Sedimentary Geology atElsevier’s leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature.

Sedimentary Geology is a journal that rapidly publishes high quality, original research and review papers that cover all aspects of sediments and sedimentary rocks at all spatial and temporal scales. Submitted papers must make a significant contribution to the field of study and must place the research in a broad context, so that it is of interest to the diverse, international readership of.

This book addresses the geology of the entire Himalayan range in Nepal, i.e., from the Gangetic plain in the south to the Tethyan zone in the north. Without a comprehensive look at the various Himalayan zones, it is practically impossible to fully grasp the processes at work behind the formation and development of the spectacular Himalaya.

All three classes of rocks (igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary) are found in the Himalayan mountains. Although the Himalayas are only million years old, most of the rocks in it are much older.

The oldest known rock in Nepal is about 2 billion years old, while a great many of them are over million years old.

The term ‘Trans-Himalaya’ for a mountain range to the north of the Indus and Yarlung-Tsangpo rivers was first used by Alexander Cunningham in his book Ladak (), but it was Sven Hedin who popularised the name in his book Trans-Himalaya () which documents Hedin’s exploration of this ically speaking, the Trans-Himalaya is made up of granitic.
