Delineation Of Groundwater Potential Zones Based On The Structures And Landforms Identified From The Landsat Imagery


S. Siddi Raju


Remote sensing is a modern advanced technique to study and identify structural features of Geological formations and landforms. Landsat imageries covering the Pulang river basin and adjacent areas has been used to delineate the structures, lineaments and landforms. Using satellite imagery LISS-II and Landsat-5 (TM), the structural elements such as folds, faults, joint pattern etc., and landforms are also identified for the purpose of assessing their groundwater potential zones in the basin area.
