Description

This book presents a geologist’s perception of earthquakes, their cause (plate tectonics), methodology, of investigation, principle behind instruments, prediction, precautions and economic implications.

It highlights the contributions of the Geological Survey of India including recognition of ancient glaciation by Blandford brothers and F Fedden which led to development of the plate tectonic theory.

Few basic principles related to the design of earthquake-resistant structures and the controversy over the Tehri dam and reservoir induced seismicity have been briefly dealt with.
