Study of morphotectonics in relation to Neotectonic Activity in parts of Tapi River Valley: A review


Author(s): Sharaddeep and DC Gupta

Abstract: Morphotectonics refers to the study of short- and long-term superficial evidence of tectonic activity. The most sensitive parameters are the lineament, drainage, and relationship with structures those control its courses. Morphological analysis of topographic features, lineaments, has long been applied in structural and tectonic studies because the manifestation of the subsurface geology and structures are many times, well documented in the landform features of a region. In recent years, remote-sensing data have increasingly been used for the interpretation of objects and mapping in various applications of geology. Digital elevation model (DEM) is very useful for detection, delineation, and interpretation of geological and structural features. Use of DEM data by enhancing objects using digital-image-processing filtering techniques and extraction procedures of the linear objects performing in a semi-automated way. Study of Carto DEM of the area identified many linear structures across which large changes in elevation are seen. Such structures have dismembered the entire terrain in crustal blocks showing differential uplift. Moderate to Low seismicity of the area is manifestation of active tectonic status of the area. The study area (i.e. Some part of Tapti Lineament Zone ) located within the Topo-sheets 55C/3, 55 C /4, 55 C /7, 55 C /8, 55 C /10, 55 C /11, 55 C /14 & 55 C /15 bounded by latitude 21O00’00” to 21O31’00” N, longitude 76O00’00” to 76O30’00” E and latitude 21O15’00” to 21O45’00” N, longitude 76O30’00” to 77O00'00” E. Covering the parts of Khandwa, Khargone & Burhanpur Districts in Madhya Pradesh and some parts of Amravati, Buldhna & Jalgaon in Maharashtra.
