This website was launched on 5 August 2001, this being the anniversary of the Department of Applied Geology of Dr H S Gour University located at Sagar in Central India under the stewardship of Late Prof William Dixon West in 1955. The Department of Geology which was opened in the same year that the university was founded in 1946 was upgraded with massive funding through the Indian University Grants Commission, and later in 1964, through another such funding the Centre of Advanced Studies and Research was established. About this website, we have received some appreciative comments (and for the A to Z software as well). We have quoted some on the website (We hold the names of people or organizations who sent comments but these will be added if permitted ) and a few on  A to Z software which are given on the welcome page.
