PONNANI MES COLLEGE (DEPARTMENT OF GEOLOGY) HONOURS
DR GOPALAKRISHNA, PROFFESSOR OF GEOLGY, ON HIS RETIREMENT, MARCH, 2012.
Dr Goplakrishana, founder HOD of the Geology department and the present Post Graduate research Department of Geology, retires from active academic work, by the end of academic year, i.e., March, 2012. The alumni and students of the Department of Geology resolved to accord a fitting send off for their visionary, inspiring and beloved teacher. “GEM”, the alumni association of the Department of Geology of the college took up the task.
I was invited to participate in the two day Seminar - “GREEN-2012”- organized by the GEM, in the college campus for which I readily agreed and as directed by the organizers I e-forwarded an abstract on the role of ponds in OC sequestration, a topic in the center stage of global climate change, and especially when the national and international efforts are aimed at reducing the member nations Carbon foot print.
