The following is from the original 27 MB file containing 716 images (many actually copyrighted) packed in a DLL resource titled AN ILLUSTRATED DICTIONARY OF STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY.exe which was first built and then this one was derived for the sake of simplicity. All copyrighted figures or images of photographs (as images) have been crunched and also in this HTMLtoEXE edition the copying is disabled, though of course you cannot stop screen capture and hence the precaution to some extent.

No work can be accomplished without help from a number of people or sources. The following is but a little note but the help taken and received is extravagant.


Only major works are credited, others left unattributed for which I submit apologies. But they too have contributed in great measure.

Most of the webs from Under Capricorn are particularly good for Asian students. By far the best in computers in nearly all fields comes from here.


Some photographs are taken from the doctoral theses of Gopal Maheshwari (3), Narendra Vaghmarey (3), Prabhat Diwan (6), Yashwant Katpatal (5), Somesh Pandey (2), Yadav Mavale (10) and Shailendra Singh (2). Other sources include theses from graduate students from other universities. These are either acknowledged in the related text or directly superscripted on the photographs.
