Research Themes


With the mandate to conduct research to unravel the mysteries of the planet that is the home of humanity, in terms of its shallow and deep structure and the short and long term processes that cause constant evolution of this home, the research directions of this institution address three broad aspects: Geodynamics, Earthquake Hazard, Natural Resources.

The results of the research investigations are communicated to the administrators and policy makers, influencers and public so that informed decisions about the availability and use of geo-resources and improved preparedness and resilience to natural hazards can be implemented for a sustainable growth of the nation. CSIR-NGRI takes up focused short and medium term research projects on topical subjects addressing key aspects of Earth Science in the country in tune with the above themes based on the collective expertise and experience of its scientists and also in collaboration with national and international partners.
