The lithology, structure, metamorphism and stratigraphy of the granite gneisses, charnockite series, khondalite series and granites occurring in the Eastern Ghats of Andhra Pradesh are described. The granite gneisses consist of the garnetiferous granite gneiss, the grey granite gneiss and porphyritic granite gneiss. The charnockite series consists of granite, diorite, gabbro, norite, amphibolite and pyroxenite. The khondalite series comprises gneisses, schists, quaitzites, and granulites… 

Study of the apatite-magnetite veins near Kasipatnam, Visakhapatnam district, Andhra Pradesh, India

A study of the mineralogy of zoned apatite-magnetite veins near Kasipatnam in the Eastern Ghats has led to the recognition of a broad paragenetic sequence starting with hyalophane, followed by

Anomalous textures in porphyritic granite of Andhra Pradesh (India)

Apparently perthitic textures of microcline phenocrysts in this rock are not due to exsolution but to deformation. Microscopic fracture planes show no offset, however, and are restricted to feldspar

Environmental Niche Modelling of Globally Threatened Yellow-Throated Bulbul, Pycnonotus Xantholaemus for Conservation Prospects in the Deccan Peninsula, India

Yellow-throated bulbul (YTB), Pycnonotus xantholaemus is an endemic and threatened bird of the Deccan Peninsula which is found in discontinuous populations. We used MaxEnt algorithm to generate

Environmental niche forecasts of globally threatened yellow-throated bulbul, Pycnonotus xantholaemus for conservation prospects in the Deccan peninsula, India

Topographic ruggedness index and precipitation of wettest month (Bio13) were the strong predictors for Yellow-throated Bulbul niche, and model predicts highly discontinuous and small fragments totalling 7% area of peninsular India as suitable niche.

Groundwater fluoride contamination, probable release, and containment mechanisms: a review on Indian context

Groundwater contamination subject to undesirable level of fluoride needs urgent attention to understand the role of geochemistry, hydrogeology and climatic factors along with anthropogenic inputs in fluoride pollution.
