EarthSCIENCE Department

INTRODUCTION

 

The Department of Earth Sciences, formerly the Department of Geology and Geophysics, was established in 1960. During the span of four decades the department has become one of the foremost centres of research, post graduate training and consultancy in the field of Earth Sciences. The department has been recipient of financial aid under the prestigious Special Assistance and COSIST programmes of UGC (Ministry of Human Resources and development, Govt. of India).
