The ISR is dedicated institute for seismic studies wherein primarily Dr. M. S. Gadhavi was responsible to carryout research in the field of paleoseismology & Active Fault Investigation and produce geological and active fault maps in GIS environment. He was also responsible for establishment of Thermal Luminescence/Optically Stimulated Luminescence (TL/OSL) dating laboratory at ISR. Geological counseling, mapping, tectonic studies, paleoseismic studies and active fault studies were his primary duties at ISR, Gandhinagar. Apart from this he provided geological guidance and supervision for geophysical surveys such as gravity survey, magnetic survey, shallow seismic survey, ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey, bore logging, electric resistivity survey, magneto-telluric (MT) survey etc.
