Abstract

Detailed remote sensing studies carried out in northeastern Gujarat, India, suggest that there has been a major change in the drainage system as evidenced by the presence of a large palaeo-delta system. Major lineaments, palaeodrainage patterns and palaeodeltas of the Vatrak and Mahi rivers. These were large rivers in the past with a high discharge and floodplains which were 5-10 km wide. Most of the palaeodrainage follows the NE-SW Precambrian lineaments/faults indicating their structural control
