Abstract

The paper presents a denudational rift flank uplift model of the Western Ghats of Karnataka. The Cenozoic denudation of the Deccan plateau was constrained by relative dating of regional planation surface levels, in combination with preliminary apatite fission track results. The denudational history of the Western Ghats escarpment coastal foreland was constrained both by onshore fission track and offshore sediment data. Methods are briefly described. Results were used as reference data to elaborate a computer simulation model of both flexural rift flank upward and escarpment retreat from the K/T boundary to the present
