The Centre for Earth Science Studies (CESS) established by the Government of Kerala, has become the National Centre for Earth Science Studies (NCESS) on 1st January, 2014. The Centre is commemorating its one year completion by holding a National Workshop “Continental Crust and Cover Sequences in the Evolution of Indian Subcontinent” during January 20-21, 2015. The workshop includes special lectures on various themes by eminent scientists who have made significant contributions on important aspects of solid earth geosciences in India in the sub-disciplines of geology and geophysics. The talks cover a wide spectrum of topics related to the crustal processes in the development of Solid Earth, involving study of metamorphic and igneous rocks in the basement complex as well as sedimentary cover sequences of diverse ages ranging from the Archaean to Quaternary (including Holocene) and also the inferences on early crustal growth, active tectonics, palaeoclimate changes, near surface processes, present day seismicity and land disturbances in the Indian shield.
