The authors, as geologists, were endowed with the fortune of working in Geomatics technology comprising Remote Sensing, GIS, GPS, etc. with a focused vision to bring out the Quaternary geological history of different parts of Indian Peninsular, the senior author during the last four decades and the co-authors during the last one and half decades. As geomorphology, one of the major branch of geology, not only dealing with external landscape architecture of the planet earth but also bears the records on the Quaternary tectonics, riverine, coastal, aeolian, glacial, volcanic and other geomorphic processes of the Quaternary period, the authors were stimulated to carry out studies on the riverine life histories, shoreline changes and offshore land building phenomena, the recent earth movements from the geomorphic anomalies, Holocene tectonics and their control over Quaternary deltas, etc. Besides unfurling the geological history of the Quaternary period, geomorphology has been deeply studied by the authors with the focus on mapping and mitigation of natural disasters like seismotectonics, landslides, response of coastal geomorphology to tsunami surges, floods, etc.
