About the Authors

Ranadhir Mukhopadhyay Author

Ph.D. Marine Geology- Manganese Nodules (Calcutta University), 1988

M.Sc. Geology (Calcutta University), 1979

B.Sc. Geology (Honours), (Burdwan University), 1977

Ranadhir Mukhopadhyay specializes in marine minerals exploration; geodynamics of continental margin, and coastal ecosystem management. In addition to writing the first edition of The Indian Ocean Nodule Field, he has written a book on the mineral wealth of the ocean, has edited another book, and has published more than three dozen research papers in top-ranking journals. Former Director of Mauritius Oceanography Institute, Dr. Mukhopadhyay is also credited with the formation of InRidge- India’s mid ocean ridge research initiative. He is a specialist in the field of formation and growth of manganese nodules, and contributed considerably in post-Cretaceous continental margin research
