Geomorphology with focus on Regional and Applied geomorphology:
Geomorphology is one of the major branches of Physical Geography with a close link with Geology and other systematic sciences. In this field, the department has evinced adequate interest from 1978 when Prof. R. K. Rai joined the department. The attention given was to study the regional geomorphology of the Northeast region with special focus on the Meghalaya plateau, and also on applied geomorphology, i.e. studying the connection between landforms and the manner it influences human activities like land use, agriculture and human habitations both rural and urban. Advanced courses on Geomorphology, Tropical Geomorphology, Environmental Geomorphology etc. are offered both at MA/MSc level as well as the M.Phil level. About 10 Ph.D. degrees have been awarded in this area and 6 Research projects have been completed.
