The Geological provinces include Continental Shield, Platform-which is a shield covered with sediment, Orogen-which leads to development of mountains, Structural Basins-which are geological depressions, and are the inverse of domes, Large igneous provinces-which are extremely large (More than 100,000 Km2) accumulation of igneous rocks—intrusive, extrusive, or both—in the earth’s crust One example of large igneous province is India’s Deccan trap. The last such geological province is extended crust.
