Abstract


The Land Sat 8 ETM+ satellite image of an area 17579 sq.km. Corresponding to the Nalgonda District and Ramadugu study region (1200 sq.km) in the northwestern part of Cuddapah basin, Telangana State was analyzed to determine the geological/structural configuration, land use land cover and geomorphology of the regions. The disposition of various faults, other lineaments and thirteen (1 to 13) radial drainage structures in the region were delineated. The findings are significant in view of the paucity of structural data in the region and form a geo structural data base for prognostication of lamproites.

*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.
