The Dharwar Craton, one of the parts of the Indian shield, is estimated to be 3 billion years old -- one of the oldest continental fragments in the world. This book surveys the Precambrian geology of peninsular India and, to some extent, the Himalayas. The authors discuss the similarities and differences between the crustal blocks of the shield and incorporate details concerning geochemistry, structural fabrics, and other special topics wherever necessary to achieve a full understanding of geologic relationships. Emphasis is placed on the broad features of the shield, with separate maps for each crustal block as well as tables of geochronological data included for further clarity.
