Abstract

The Digital Elevation Model and field data of Lanja region from southern most Konkan Coastal Belt was studied to recognize various tectonic structures and associated landscape features, which helped to infer structures of strong extensional and a relatively weak horizontal compressive stress. The former is characterized by a group of N-S trending westerly dipping listric normal faults associated with synthetic and antithetic faults which reveal the presence of a half graben structure. This structure is responsible for the development of fault bounded blocks across the Lanja region, exhibiting plateau in west, low land at the centre, and sub-Ghat and the scarp in east. The NW-SE and ENE-WSW oriented conjugate lineaments have cross-cutting relationship to N-S trending half graben structures and are the result of WNW oriented compressive stress which appears to be imposed by intra-plate stress field prevailing in the Central Indian Ocean.
