Mapping of Lineaments in Some Part of Betul District, Madhya Pradesh and Amravati District of Maharashtra, Central India Using Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques

B. S. Manjare


Lineament analysis around Salbardi and adjoining area were carried out using a remotely sensed IRS-LISS-3 Satellite imagery for the analysis of the areas based on the frequency and density of lineaments on the lithology. The area comprising 252 lineaments in the rocks of Proterozoic, Deccan trap, and Upper Gondwana formation. The extracted lineaments were statistically analyzed to determine lengths and intersections of the lineaments to create rose diagram and lineament map. The lineament from the study area which is important part of the Son Narmada Tapti Lineament has numerous long and short fractures/lineation whose structural trends are mainly to the Son Narmada Tapti Lineament and gets the special significance to  the given study area. The calculated lineaments from the given study area has been utilized for the correlation to the Salbardi fault and Son Narmada Tapti Lineament.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
