      Geodynamics; A model based on geophysical data from the Indian Ocean suggests that a mantle-plume head may once have coupled the motions of the African and Indian tectonic plates, and determined. Summary. The M w Bhuj earthquake in Gujarat, western India, which occurred on January 26 was a major intraplate event in the Indian subcontinent. To study the characteristics of transient post-seismic deformation at the earth's surface, to elucidate the distribution of strain accumulation rate and so understand the earthquake recurrence process, five GPS campaigns were conducted at

      It discusses geodynamics and seismotectonics with respect to the Indian Plate zone, including the Indian Ocean, Himalaya, Tibet and Archean- Proterozoic Cratons and Mobile Belts. It also presents ways for integrated exploration for hydrocarbons, minerals, groundwater and a number of environmental issues relevant in engineering and archaeology.   Roughly at the same time, long-lived subduction east of Australia ceased, probably due to subduction of the Phoenix-Pacific spreading ridge, changing this plate boundary to a transform margin. A drastic change in spreading direction between the Indian and Australian plates from NW-SE to N-S occurred at about 99 Ma.

      Cretaceous/Early Paleogene. Subduction of larger parts of Indian Plate oceanic material probably did not happen. Initial contact between continental Indian Plate and Eurasia is dated early Eocene. The first part of the Indian Plate involved in the collision was the Bela-Waziristan-Ophiolite Zone which obducted on to the margin of Indian Plate. The plate shares a boundary with the Eurasian Plate, the African Plate, the Arabian Plate and the Aegean Sea Plate. This region is perhaps most well known for the North Anatolian Fault; the east-west striking continental transform fault situated in northern Turkey, which produces persistent earthquake activity along the fault.

The Indian Plate or India Plate is a major tectonic plate straddling the equator in the eastern ally a part of the ancient continent of Gondwana, India broke away from the other fragments of Gondwana and began moving north.

Once fused with the adjacent Australia to form a single Indo-Australian Plate, recent studies suggest that India and Australia have been separate plates. The Indian plate is underthrusting, albeit obliquely, and the Burmese (Myanmar) microplate, the rates of sliding movement varying from sector to sector.

This fact implies that the margin of the Indian plate is segmented (Khan, ). This variation in the rate of sliding is attributed to the splitting of the Assam block into two by the NW–SE. Verma, R.K.

The Indian Peninsula is a collage of many terranes, where ancient rocks, denudational surfaces and rivers predominate. The peninsula displays amazing diversity of landscape features, from tiny koppies to the ~1,km long Great Escarpment of India (the Western Ghat/Sahyadri).By and large, bedrock landforms and partially to deeply weathered rocks dominate the.

I - Tectonics and Geodynamics - Grasemann, Bernhard, Stüwe, Kurt The third type of earthquake is related to subduction zones along convergent plate margins. One plate is thrust or subducted under the other plate so that a deep ocean trench is produced (e.g., Peru - Chile trench, where the Pacific plate is being subducted.

One of the lowest geoid anomalies on Earth lies in the Indian Ocean just south of the Indian peninsula. Several theories have been proposed to explain this gravity low. Most of these theories try to explain the existence of this anomaly with the help of cold, dense oceanic plate that sank into the mantle in the past and which could potentially.

Abstract below: The SW Pacific region consists of a succession of ridges and basins that were created by the fragmentation of Gondwana and the evolution of subduction.

North of the Indian plate is the Eurasian plate, to the south east, the Australian plate, to the south west, the African plate and to the west the Arabian plate.

About million years ago the main landmass on Earth was concentrated together in a super continent called Gondwana which started to break up in four tectonic plates; African. The Indian Ocean is the third-largest of the world's oceanic divisions, cover, km 2 (27, sq mi) or % of the water on Earth's surface.

It is bounded by Asia to the north, Africa to the west and Australia to the east. To the south it is bounded by the Southern Ocean or Antarctica, depending on the definition in use. Along its core, the Indian Ocean has some large marginal.

The peninsular shield of India in the interior of the Indian Plate is characterized by intra-plate earthquakes. The major earthquakes in the peninsula are associated with prominent fault zones in the margins of the peninsular shield, especially along the Bombay—Ratnagiri coast, the western parts of the Narmada Rift zone and the southeastern parts of the Precambrian shield.
