Understanding the Structure and Tectonics of the Indian Ocean

National Institute of Oceanography, Dona Paula, Goa, India



On this Expedition:

I am one of the senior scientific investigators for this expedition and I work with the other scientists and students mostly in the area of geophysics. My goal is to understand the plate tectonics in the Indian Ocean and how this area formed. I have helped on this expedition to show students how we do science and research at sea.



About myself:

I am a cool guy who respects personal values and the value of a system's view. Also, I am fascinated to know the behavior of nature in the past. I use an integrated geophysical approach for investigation of complex geological problems. Working at NIO, India for the last two and half decades, I have learned crustal architecture of the aseismic ridges and ocean basins of the Indian Ocean. Also, I investigated the structural style of lithospheric deformation in the middle of the Indo-Austarlian plate.

For Students:

The sea has been an area that I have studied because of the way it formed in the past. India is close to the 90 East Ridge and I have learned about this region. We are collecting information here that I hope will help me to answer questions about the past.
