Gautam Ghosh

Professor and Head of the Department

I belong to the clan of Structural Geologists who studies rock deformation and evolution of the orogenic/ mountain belts all over the globe with utmost enthusiasm. I got interested in the subject for the primary reason that it offered a key for unravelling the complex 3-D geometries and evolutionary processes of the mountain belts, the study of which provide vital clues regarding tectonic processes occurring on and within the earth such as earthquake activities, volcanic eruptions or plate movements. Besides, the orogenic belts also serves as the storehouse of vast resources of metallic and nonmetallic deposits, fossil fuels including petroleum and nuclear fuels, the careful exploration and utilization of which played pivotal roles behind the growth of human civilization to its present status.
