  • of the epicenters of the events are very close to the Main Central Thrust (MCT), in between Munsiari Thrust (MT) and Berinag Thrust (BT). The neotectonic investigations were carried out in the major river valleys of the Kumaun Himalaya. From the investigations some
  • new faults are identified on the basis of geomorphological signatures. The morphotectonic development has been related to the prevalent seismicity of the region. It is evident that the major thrust and faults of the region are seismically as well
  • as neotectonically active in some segments. From the ongoing seismic and neotectonic movements it is clear that some of the faults and thrusts are active at present.

  • data and fieldwork. The Himalayan Frontal Thrust (HFT) and faults define the structural boundary of the basin. These tectonic features have a profound control on the development and disposition of geomorphic features in the area. However, the Holocene
  • Geomorphic and tectonic features in a part of the Piedmont Zone (PZ) of the west Ganga Plain have been identified and mapped on the basis of various terrain characteristics and sedimentological attributes using Digital Terrain Models, remote sensing
