Aims and Scope:
We invite proposals for reference books written by a single person or a group of authors/editors covering (a) theoretical discussions, problem solving, practical aspects (such as map interpretation and computer analysis) and (b) regional structural and tectonic aspects. New developments, industrial applications, and interdisciplinary materials linking geophysics, petrology, petrophysics, etc. are also encouraged.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to: ductile, brittle-ductile and ductile deformation mechanisms and related structures in micro-, meso- and mega-scales studied through field investigations, microstructures, analogue and analytical models; kinematics of plate boundaries and interiors; and regional studies of structural geological and tectonic importance.
Professor of geology, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India
Soumyajit Mukherjee, PhD, is a Professor of Geology at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India. He received his Ph.D. degree in Geology from IIT Roorkee in 2007, M.Tech. in 2002 from IIT Roorkee, and B.Sc. with Geology Honours from Presidency College (Kolkata) in 1999. Dr. Mukherjee is a structural geologist and tectonics researcher and performs fieldwork, microstructural studies, and analogue and analytical modeling mainly on ductile shear kinematics and collisional tectonics. He has been serving as an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Earth Sciences (formerly “Geologische Rundschau”). His research and editorial experience spans 14 years and he has authored and edited nine books, including the Atlas of Structural Geology, which won a PROSE Honorable Mention award. He received the Hutchison Young Scientist Award from IUGS in 2004 and has been a Guest Researcher at the Hans Ramberg Tectonic Lab, Uppsala University in 2005-2006..
If you would like more information or would like to propose a book for the series, please contact Prof. Mukherjee at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
