Any additional information:
 

  1. The significant lasting contribution of the current research is the development of high resolution ammonoid based geological refinement in the Indian Jurassic of the order of 100,000 yrs. to 500,000 yrs. which equals the best of the world as also the best of the entire Indian shallow marine geological record. Multidisciplinary study (Ammonoid-Sequence-Magnetochronologic integration) in collaboration with NGRI is going on particularly in Jurassic of Kachchh .
