  Dharwar - LoveToKnow 1911
DHARWAR, a town and district of British India, in the southern division of Bombay.
After the defeat of the king of Vijayanagar at Talikot (1565), Dharwar was for a few years practically independent under its Hindu governor; but in 1573 the fort was captured by the sultan of Bijapur, and Dharwar was annexed to his dominions.
In 1685 the fort was taken by the emperor Aurangzeb, and Dharwar, on the break-up of the Mogul empire, fell under the sway of the peshwa of Poona.

 The Chitradurga Schist Belt and its Adjacent Plutonic Rocks
The Late Archaean Dharwar Supergroup in the Chitradurga schist belt NW of Tungabhadra river is dominated by low-grade metabasalts, polymict conglomerates, ferruginous cherts and greywackes with intercalations of dolomitic limestone and felsic volcanic rocks.
In the Late Archaean oblique convergent setting of the Dharwar craton, the duplex dips NE away from the foreland formed by the western part of the craton and into the accretionary complex of granites (Dharwar batholith) and intra-arc schist belts comprising the eastern part.
Plutonic rocks in the hanging and foot wall blocks are tentatively correlated with granites in the western margin of the Dharwar batholith.

In the South Indian basement, several crustal-scale amphibolite facies shear zones occur between high-grade metamorphic units with a different geological history: the EW-trending Moyar Shear Zone (MSZ) is a zone of predominantly dip-slip transport separating the Archaean Dharwar Craton in the north from the late Archaean Nilgiri Block in the south.
South of the BSZ, the high-grade metasediments and metaintrusives of the Maddukarai region are separated from the 0.6 Ga-metamorphic Madurai Block by the EW-trending dextral Palghat Shear Zone (PSZ).
An allochthonous quarzite (TDM 3.3 Ga) of the BSZ is regarded as counterpart of the Archaean Sargur group, which is exposed in schist belts of the Dharwar Craton.

 The Hindu Business Line : No takers for new wheat varieties from UAS Dharwar
UAS Dharwar, which had released new varieties of wheat suitable for cultivation in South India, is yet to make any commercial headway.
Last year, the Karnataka Roller Flour Mills Association entered into a loose contract with farmers in Dharwar to grow the DRW 162 and DRW 195 varieties.
Though the quality of the wheat is very good with high gluten content, it does not seem to have made any difference to the millers.

The Archean Dharwar craton in south India is known for long time to be different from most other cratons.
We observe striking differences in crustal structures between the eastern and western Dharwar craton (EDC and WDC, respectively): crustal thickness is of around 31 km, with predominantly felsic velocities, in the EDC and of around 55 km, with predominantly mafic velocities, in the WDC.

 Three-dimensional field perspective on deformation, flow, and growth of the lower continental crust (Dharwar craton, ...
The study of fabric development and juvenile batholith emplacement across the tilted crustal section of the Eastern Dharwar craton shows that horizontal, constrictional deformation affected large volumes of the midcrust and lower crust at the time of regional partial melting and magmatic accretion.
The Eastern Dharwar craton illustrates an end-member deformation mode by which a particularly weakened lithosphere responds to shortening by developing distributed, horizontal plane strain on a crustal scale, resulting from the combination of crustal shortening and lateral gravity-driven flow.
Thinning accompanying constrictional deformation is interpreted as compensating for juvenile magmatic accretion and thickening of greenstone belts and as acting to maintain a stable crustal thickness.

The Archean Dharwar granite-greenstone-gneiss terrane and the gneiss-granulite province of south India (termed as Southern Granulite Province) have low heat flow in the range 25 to 50 mWm-2.
The Cretaceous to Tertiary Deccan Volcanic Province, in the region south of the Son-Narmada lineament, is characterised by heat flow in the same range as the Dharwar province.
While the mantle heat flow in the case of the Dharwar greenstone-granite-gneiss province (11-16 mW m-2) is similar to most Precambrian provinces of the world, it is found to be significantly higher for the northern part of the gneiss-granulite province (25-30 mW m-2).

 BSSA, Volume 90:5   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The inferred upper crustal structure modeled by alternating high and low velocity lamellae, together with the derived physical properties and the F-K analysis of the P coda, suggests a scattering waveguide at 5-15 km depth in this region.
The scattering waveguide appears to be related to the large Closepet granite intrusion, which is believed to be a Precambrian suture between the western and eastern Dharwar cratons in the south Indian shield.
The inferred crustal P-velocity model for the eastern Dharwar craton, revealing a transitional Moho at a shallow depth of 34-36 km, is consistent with the models for other Archaean cratons.

The Craton is divided into two blocks; the Western Dharwar (WDC) consists of voluminous supracrustal rocks (3.3-2.6 Ga) on a largely 3.4-2.9 Ga tonalite-trondjhemite-granodiorite (TTG) basement, the Older Gneiss Complex or Peninsular Gneiss.
The Eastern Dharwar (EDC) is characterised by voluminous 2.6-2.5 Ga calc-alkaline granitoids enclosing narrow tracts of 2.7 Ga supracrustals.
The eastern block is believed to be thrust onto the western block along an extensive mylonite zone on the eastern boundary of the Chitradurga schist belt.
