      The geological environment is complex and there are many geological disaster factors. Combined with previous research results (Chen XH, et al., ), the distribution of major disaster geology in the Bohai Strait was delineated by a fine interpretation of high-resolution sub Author: Sai Mei, Hong-xian Chu, Ling-yu Dong, Zhong-hua Fang, Pan-feng Li, Fei-fei Zhang, Rui Shan, Tie-hu Z. Geology of the Himalayan Belt: Deformation, Metamorphism, Stratigraphy. presents sophisticated metamorphic and igneous rock data across various Himalayan geographic sectors, capturing their petrography, metamorphism, structure, mineralization, and regional tectonic research.. With an east-west extension of about kilometers and numerous meter peaks, the Himalayas are the most.

      We report a magnetostratigraphic and rock magnetic study of the Yaha section, located on the southern flank of the central Tian Shan mountains, Asia. Our results show a two-fold increase in sedimentation rate as well as marked changes in rock magnetic characteristics ca. 11 by: A scientist trained in the investigation and analysis of rocks and mountains is called a geologist. Geology is the study of the earth's history as recorded in rocks.

        The Northern Indian Himalayan state of Uttarakhand experienced widespread flash floods and landslides in mid-June. The scale of the disaster was huge. Climate change is increasing the frequency of such disasters world-wide. In such a context, all of our interventions need to take this reality into account and strive to reduce the risks. Yet in the case of these disastrous floods, it is. Himalayan mountains of east-central Nepal (Ganesh Himal). First discovered in the early s, these deposits have had only the authors (AMB) made the first geologic study of the corundum-producing region at Ganesh Himal (Bassett, ). After concluding this investigation, RUBIES AND FANCY-COLOR SAPPHIRES FROM NEPAL a.

[J A Hodgson; F Wilford]. Geologic Formation of the Himalaya Rasoul Sorkhabi. The Himalaya, located on the southern fringe of the Tibetan Plateau, form a mountain arc (convex toward the south) about km long and km wide; they are bounded by two structural bends on the northwest (Nanga Parbat, the Indus gorge) and northeast (Namcha Barwa, the Tsangpo gorge).

The Salt Range sequence dips below the Potwar basin, which is the regime of the Siwaliks with rich vertebrate fossil content. The Lesser Himalayan Sequence (LHS), delimited to the south by the Main Boundary Thrust (MBT) with the Siwaliks on the underthrust side, is about 20–35 km wide and records low-grade metamorphism, and metamorphic intensity increases to the north and northeast.
