      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    The primary objective of this book is to present the basic concepts of structural geology to undergraduate students. A comprehensive coverage of important topics, such as folding, joints, faults, diaperism, unconformities, impact structures, igneous rocks and geophysical methods essential for both the geologist and geophysicist is incorporated. Emphasis is laid on mathematical methods especially while dealing with mechanical principles, mechanics of folding, jointing, plastic deformations, and geophysical methods. Laboratory exercises encourage students to analyze geological problems in a wider perspective. References at the end of each chapter render the book useful to advanced reader also.

    It gives the basics, but is not detailed in any topic. One should follow another detailed one along with this for a good base formation in structural geology.
    Now as of GOJAVAS COURIER COD, it was very fast, the product been delivered almost 12 days earlier. Thanks to the retailer and for the non-defective, right book with such a protective packaging. I am very much satisfied with the book I received.
