Abstract

We geomorphometrically characterize the tectonics near the microseismically active Nanded region, Maharashtra, India. We used the geomorphic indices of active tectonics in 32 sub-basins to evaluate the relationship between tectonics and basin morphology. The area is divided into three different zones (1, 2 and 3). Microseismicity is concentrated along the NW–SE-trending Urvashi Ghat Lineament. The anomalous drainages and lineaments are also confined to the region where microseismicity is associated with thrust. Spatial analysis of the elongation ratio and hypsometric integral of the basins provide valuable information on their distribution and relationship to the structure and tectonics. This study suggests neotectonic control on the evolution of the basins close to Nanded City.
