By Naresh Chandra Ghose, Nilanjan Chatterjee, Fareeduddin

The e-book is a considerate dialogue with scientists learning convergent plate obstacles corresponding to the well known, lively India-Eurasia collision sector. It offers a entire choice of petrographic photos of ophiolitic rocks exhumed from oceanic lithosphere and mantle on the India-Asia plate boundary. Ophiolite is uncovered within the northwestern Himalayas, japanese Indian plate margin and Andaman-Nicobar Islands. on the jap margin, it happens in a slim strip comprising mantle peridotite tectonite, cummulate peridotite-gabbro-plagiogranite-anorthosite, mafic dyke, volcanics and oceanic sediments. Low temperature/high strain rocks together with blueschists and eclogites have been broadly studied lately. Ophiolite derived sediments and podiform chromites can also be mentioned to supply whole info. Supplemental maps, geological sections, box sketches and pictures will clarify the constitution, stratigraphy, ore mineralization, and metamorphic history.

The sediments were deposited in the shallow marine waters of an epicontinental sea or lagoon. The conglomerate contains clasts of serpentinite, gabbro, basalt, chert (with or without radiolaria), crystalline limestone, quartz, jasper, quartzite, sandstone, phyllite and slate embedded in a reworked tuffaceous to siliceous cement. The tuffaceous matrix constitutes up to 50 % by volume of the rock.
