The Union Ministry of Mines has awarded the prestigious National Geoscience Award-2019 to Anand P. Singh, Distinguished Scientist, CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute (CSIR-NGRI), Hyderabad. Dr. Singh has made notable contributions to the understanding of the tectonics of the Southern Indian Shield, Deccan Volcanic Province and Rajmahal Traps regions using Earth gravity data.

His pioneering work has important implications for unraveling the Precambrian tectonics of the South Indian Shield and the modification of the Indian continental crust by plume activities. He aptly integrated gravity and geoid to delineate the lithosphere-asthenosphere (LAB) boundary in the Indian subcontinent.

Dr. Singh was involved in the preparation of the India-2006 Gravity Map Series and has contributed extensively to hydrocarbon exploration in the Infracambrian Bikaner-Nagaur Basin. These maps are of immense use in understanding regional tectonics and natural resource exploration, a press release said Tuesday.
