We took a field trip to the Deccan Traps in the Western Ghats led by Dr. Sukanta Roy (NGRI). Here are the classic extensive flood basalts (about 67-63 Ma). Dr. Roy studies reservoir triggered seismicity. Ever since 2 reservoirs went into this area ~ 40 years ago, there have been consistent earthquakes.
As always, there are lots of things to see enroute.
Cities and villages in India are full of color. We drove by many fields of sugar cane and took a slight detour to the hill station strawberry gardens, a popular spot for getting lunch and big strawberry sundaes. After a brief overnight in Goa (west coast beaches), we are on to Delhi.
