Abstract

The coastline of Kachchh in the arid, westernmost part of India can be broadly divided into five major segments. These are, from west to east, the deltaic coast, the irregular drowned prograded coast, the spits and cuspate foreland complex and the mud flat coast. Satellite remote sensing helped in correct identification and mapping of the segments, while field investigation, followed by remote sensing, helped in identification and characterisation of the landform units within the segments. Neotectonism appears to have played a crucial role in effecting the above coastal division
