Summary

I am a computer freak, who is looking for a way to merge computers with geology. Computers in my sense are not just limited to the laptops and desktops that we use today, but can also be found in the cellphones that we carry around in our pockets. My passion is to make people use more of their "computers"

My hobbies include: Playing my piano, riding my bicycle, messing with electronics and sometimes reading books

 Geoinformatics application of Fog and Fog dispersal using ion dispersal methods

Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee

Under the first part of my current dissertation project, I am trying to analyze fog observed in India, especially the northern part, for five consecutive seasons. I aim at finding a trend in the fog occurence and will try to discover a pattern in its behaviour. Under the second part, I intend to try and study dispersal of fog using ion techniques and try to see its applicability in field.

 Deducing the thermal history of a greater himalayan sequence rock using Garnet-BiotiteDiffusion Modelling Technique

Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur

Using the diffusion profile of the available ions and understanding the exchange of ions between garnet and surrounding minerals, the metamorphic history of a rock sample can be predicted. For this, the rock samples were studied under microscope for finding out the textural relationships, following which the EPMA analysis was done. Using the data obtained by the EPMA analysis, diffusion profile was created by using the equations of diffusion and the thermal history was predicted.
