Structure and tectonics of western continental margin of India: Implication for geologic hazards
MetadataShow full item record
The geomorphological and geological characteristics of Western Continental Margin of India (WCMI) are closely related to the tectonic history of the Indian subcontinent, its break up during continental rifting, magmatic and sedimentary history, northward movement of India and finally collision with the Eurasian plate. The margin is characterized by extensional tectonics resulted during early stage of passive margin formation.
