Geomorphology and landuse of Pasighat-Jonai bazar area-A photo based study in a part of Dihang river basin, Arunachal pradesh and Assam

  • 24 Accesses

Abstract

Photo-interpretation coupled with systematic field checks over an area of about 1500 sq. km has led to the identification of various landform units and their characteristic landuse pattern in part of the submontaneous tract of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam in the Dihang river basin. Four major geomorphic units have been mapped and their respective lithounits are studied in detail. Present landuse and the land’s capability inrespect of each of the major geomorphic units have been noted. Suggestions have been made for better utilisation of land.
