Overview for Neotectonic and Isoseismal Atlas of North India
This doucument dealing with two different but inter-related has been presented in two parts. Whereas, the first one describes various neotectonic evidences found and / or mapped in the field, the second part is devotedto the isoseismal maps of the earthquakes, which have affected North India. Here, the term North India, in general has been used to include areas north of Tropic of Cancer.
This Atlas incorporates mainly those neotectonic manifestations, which have either been recorded on the basis of direct evidences or interpreted on the basis of sound geological methods. Hence, those based on other indirect evidence e.g. anomalous denudation patterns through geomorphological methods, which indicate the crustal adjustments in the form of uplift or subsidence, have not been included in this compilation.
This Atlas covers the areas of North India comprising the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Uttrakhan, Uttar Pradesh, and Union Territories of Delhi and Chandigarh.
