Department of Geology

The full fledged Department of Geology was established on January 22, 1923 under the leadership of late Prof. Krishna Kumar Mathur. As the premier institution of Geology in the country, the Department has produced eminent scholars who more than often headed most of the leading geological organizations of India such as GSI, ONGC, AMD, CGWB, MECL, CIL, NMDC, as also in teaching and research institutions in top capacities at national and international levels.

Our Department is unique in the country in having competent and distinguished faculties in almost all branches of Geology: Mineralogy, Crystallography, Structure and Tectonics, Petrology (Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary), Stratigraphy, Paleontology (Invertebrate, Vertebrate, Micropaleontology, Paleobotany), Oceanography, Geochemistry, Fuel Geology (Coal and Petroleum), Hydrogeology, Economic Geology, Engineering Geology, Remote Sensing & Photo Geology, Mineral Exploration & Geomorphology. The Department of Geology integrates theory, modeling, experiment, measurement and observation in order to reach a full understanding of the problems we are addressing. Although research is rooted in fundamental science, much of it is applied to the exploitation of earth resources and management of the environment.
