Abstract

The lineaments and the channel segments of the surrounding area have been studied. It is concluded that most of the streams are structurally controlled and others are carving out their own path. The Ganga Lake seems to have been formed from ponding of a tributary of the Budhibeta stream during neotectonic activity. Its peculiar triangular shape signifies its structural trauma in the Quaternary period. Abrupt deflection in the course of the Chimpu and Senkhi streams, presence of faults and vertical faults, triangular facets, fault scarps, uplifted river terraces, and active landslides in the Itanagar Capital complex confirm neotectonism
