      The present physical form of the Indian subcontinent is the result of a vast geological formation. India is mainly composed of three geological units: (a) the peninsular plateaus, (b) the Himalayan mountains, and (c~ the Indo Gangetic plains. Most of the geologists believe that the Indian peninsula, the oldest of the three geological forma tions,. A World Bank and United Nations report shows estimates that around million city dwellers in India will be exposed to storms and earthquakes by The latest version of seismic zoning map of India given in the earthquake resistant design code of India [IS (Part 1) ] assigns four levels of seismicity for India in terms of zone.

    Page 28 - In spite of his life being several times in danger from attacks by the natives, the loss of some of his followers by fever, and a varied chapter of other disasters, Mr. Motte was enabled to collect a considerable amount of interesting information about the country. Owing to the disturbed state of Sambalpur town, however, he was only able to purchase a few diamonds.   In general the thickness of the upper (including the sedimentary column) and the middle (– km s −1 velocity) parts of the crust is found to be larger (thickness varying between 22 and 27 km) than the lower crustal column (interval velocity – km s −1 with a thickness of 5 to 10 km).

Induced seismicity refers to typically minor earthquakes and tremors that are caused by human activity that alters the stresses and strains on the Earth's induced seismicity is of a low magnitude. A few sites regularly have larger quakes, such as The Geysers geothermal plant in California which averaged two M4 events and 15 M3 events every year from to A light earthquake struck the Koyna-Warna region in Maharashtra, India, on 2 7 March 3 at A M local time causing minor damage to property in Patan taluka.

The earthquake had a magnitude of M L = 4. 1 and was felt in parts of western Maharashtra. All kinds of rock masses, mineral deposits, mineral fuels including coal and oil resources occur in India.

At some reservoirs, seismicity begins almost immediately following the first filling of the reservoir. At others, pronounced increases in seismicity are not observed until a number of seasonal filling cycles have by: Tectonics of the Deccan Large Igneous Province: an introduction Deccan Plateau uplift: insights from parts of Western Uplands, Maharashtra, India Alteration and submergence of basalts in Kachchh, Gujarat, India: implications for the role of the Deccan Traps in the India-Seychelles break-up.
