By Naresh Chandra Ghose,Nilanjan Chatterjee,Fareeduddin

The ebook is a considerate dialogue with scientists learning convergent plate barriers equivalent to the well known, lively India-Eurasia collision region. It offers a finished choice of petrographic photographs of ophiolitic rocks exhumed from oceanic lithosphere and mantle on the India-Asia plate boundary. Ophiolite is uncovered within the northwestern Himalayas, japanese Indian plate margin and Andaman-Nicobar Islands. on the japanese margin, it happens in a slender strip comprising mantle peridotite tectonite, cummulate peridotite-gabbro-plagiogranite-anorthosite, mafic dyke, volcanics and oceanic sediments. Low temperature/high strain rocks together with blueschists and eclogites have been greatly studied lately. Ophiolite derived sediments and podiform chromites can also be mentioned to supply whole info. Supplemental maps, geological sections, box sketches and images will clarify the constitution, stratigraphy, ore mineralization, and metamorphic history.
