"The Advances in Earth Sciences is an annual book series consisting selected technical papers of the quarterly e-Journal Earth Science India volume-I, 2008. The Earth Science India (ESI) was launched during the international year of planet earth (2008) with a view to enhance communication between earth scientists of India and their peers from other parts of the world. The book series encompasses research/review papers addressed to all the domains of earth sciences-geology, geophysics, atmospheric and environmental sciences and thus providing a common platform to enhance multidisciplinary researches. It is a publication of The Society of Earth Scientists (SES)."
