Description

Precambrian rocks constitute most of the Indian peninsula, and occur in the Himalayas and related mountainous regions along the northern part of the country. This book provides a general description of the major features of the Indian Shield, dividing its discussion by geologic and geographic area. The Dharwar craton, one of the parts of the shield, is estimated to be about 3000 million years old, and hence one of the oldest continental fragments in the world. The major features of India are compared with other ancient shields, as well as younger shields such as the Nubian Arabian Shield and the Arabian Peninsula.show more
