A manual of the geology of India. chiefly compiled from the observations of the Geological survey by Geological Survey of India( Book )

44 editions published between 1893 and 2011 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The geologist Richard Dixon Oldham (1858-1936) published the second edition of Geology of India in 1892 for the Geological Survey of India. The work is a thoroughgoing revision of the first edition of the same manual compiled by H.M. Medlicott (1829-1905) and W.T. Blanford (1832-1905), published in 1879. It contains one of the earliest and most important geological surveys of India. Owing to an increase in available data since the first edition, descriptions of the rock formations of the country are arranged chronologically. This edition is particularly important for the data on, and discussion of, the age and origins of the Himalayas. It includes other chapters on metamorphic and crystalline rocks, fossils, vegetation, volcanic regions, geological history, and rock formation. It is a key work of nineteenth-century geology which remains relevant for geologists studying the subcontinent today

Geologist and seismologist Richard Dixon Oldham (1858–1936) is best known for making two fundamental discoveries: in 1900 he identified primary, secondary and tertiary seismic waves, and in 1906 he presented evidence for the existence of the Earth's core. A fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, the Geological Society of London and the Royal Society, Oldham spent a large part of his career in Asia. Involved in the Geological Survey of India for twenty-five years, he played a key role in the development of geological research in the region (his revised Manual of the Geology in India is also reissued in this series). Originally published in 1888, the present work was the first bibliography of its kind and remains a valuable reference tool in earth sciences. Notably, Oldham chose to broaden the scope of the work by also listing papers on Indian mineralogy, geography, archaeology and botany
