Multidisciplinary Geosciences - Reports

The Geological Survey of India has made remarkable contribution at different stages of geotechnical investigations for the successful completion of large numbers of Water Resource Projects including hydroelectric, irrigation and river linking projects within the country and abroad, in a safe and cost effective manner. GSI has also extended its expertise in construction of a number of communication projects, thermal power projects, and nuclear power plants and in urban development based on techno-economical and eco-friendly considerations.

As a nodal agency, GSI is entrusted with undertaking and coordinating landslide investigations and formulation of mitigation measures by developing strategy / methodology for all types of landslide investigations in the country. GSI is also spearheading implementation of the proposed Action Plan on Landslide Hazard Risk Mitigation of MHA and formulation of a landslide hazard risk mitigation code to be followed by all Government and other user agencies. GSI has also initiated a National programme for Landslide Susceptibility Mapping at scale 1:50,000 (NLSM) covering 0.42 million sq. km landslide prone hill area of the country in a phased manner.

Geoscientists of GSI are also engaged in seismic / earthquake studies like Seismic hazard microzonation, Active fault mapping, neotectonic studies, etc.
