Study of structures associated with shear zones is a crucial aspect to understand the deformation mechanism associated with such zones. Shear zones have been emphasized since it will lead to many latest applied studies such as radioactive waste disposal, groundwater flow etc. For the sake of brevity, research papers cannot show all possible variation in structures found in shear zones. The proposed book aims to present some of these structures in great details with attractive colour photographs. Each photograph will have a comprehensive caption.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The Atlas of Shear Zone Structures in Meso-Scale illustrates the morphological characteristics of shear zones within the Himalayas . . the Atlas is a milestone for researchers, students and professional structural geologists who would like to work on shear zones. The wide variety of structures related to shear zones which are presented in this book include those that are commonly beyond the scope of publication in research articles. This treatment will cater for all who are interested in shear zone dynamics." (Rajkumar Ghosh, Geological Journal, February, 2014)
