GATE 2018 Syllabus For Geology & Geophysics Download Topics

Gate Geology and Geophysics GG Syllabus PDFGATE Geology and Geophysics (GG) are the 2 streams of knowledge which merge into a single river flowing through a common channel. GATE Paper for this field is being conducted in cumulative manner for these fields. The syllabus for GATE GG Exam is being described below studying as per which will help you to gain much higher score in the exam.

Under Geology section, there are several basic topics to be studied for the exam. These will include-

Igneous rocks (classification, forms, textures, magmatic differentiation), Metamorphism, role of fluids in metamorphism, metamorphic provinces of India, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, Stress, strain, primary and secondary structures, methods of projection, GIS, Crystalsymmetry, crystal chemistry, optical mineralogy, folding, Morphology, microfossils and palaeoflora, Geomorphic processes and agents; development and evolution of landforms, Oremineralogy and optical properties of ore minerals, sampling, ore reserve estimation, geostatistics, mining methods, marine geology and ocean resources, Engineering properties of rocks and soils, role of geology in the construction of engineering structures including dams, tunnels and excavation sites, principles of remote sensing, interaction of energy with earth’s surface, air-photo interpretation, multispectral remote sensing in visible

Under Geophysics section, the topics to be covered are-

The earth as a planet (motion, gravity field shape, size) Clairaut’s theorem, velocity, pressure, temperature, electrical & magnetic properties of the earth, earthquakes (causes, measurements, magnitude, intensity, focal mechanisms, earthquake quantification, geomagnetic field), Scalar and vector potential fields, Laplace, Maxwell, Green’s theorem, Basic concepts of forward and inverse problems of geophysics, ‘G’ and ‘g’ units of measurement, absolute and relative gravity measurements; Land, airborne, shipborne and bore-hole gravity surveys, density estimates of rocks, regional & residual gravity separation, depth rules, calculation of mass, concepts of D.C. resistivity measurement, Dar-Zarrouck parameters, reduction of layers, equivalence and suppression, Basic concept of EM induction, Seismic methods of prospecting, Geophysical signal processing


There are some topics which are common to both geology & Geophysics which are-

atmosphere and greenhouse effect, interior of the earth, paleomagnetism, soil formation, Basic structural geology, mineralogy, stratigraphic principles, Earth and Planetary system, properties of rocks and soils, coal and petroleum resources of India, adiometric prospecting for oil, mineral and ground water, introductory well logging, Introduction to remote sensing
