Abstract

Geomorphic data combined with stratigraphic studies provide significant information to constrain timing and amount of fault movement. The lower Narmada valley lies astride the Narmada-Son Fault (NSF), an important ENE-WSW-trending tectonic element responsible for the current intraplate seismicity being experienced in the central part of the Indian plate. Varying nature and degree of tectonic movements along the NSF during Late Pleistocene and Holocene have produced 4 geomorphic surfaces in the lower Narmada valley. The AA. discuss the geomorphic evolution of the lower Narmada valley in relation to neotectonic movements along the NSF
