The geoscientific studies proposed to be undertaken by NCPOR during the XII Plan period primarily seek to address issues related to the Indian landmass and the oceans surrounding it, such as the geological evolution of the Indian landmass through time, the origin of the Arabian Sea basin, the growth of the Himalaya vis-a-vis the build-up of the Indus Fan, the ersosion response of Himalaya to a hypothesized strengthening of the monsoon at ~8my BP, the nature of the crust under the continental margin, the continent-ocean boundary off the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal etc. The access to the deep sediment and ocean bottom rocks through deep drilling in oceans and studies in Andaman subduction zone to understand the geological complexities of the processes involved in tectonic movements.
