IRS -P6 LISS-IV satellite data is used to demarcate Hydrogeomorphology land
forms and lineaments on 1;10000 scale to evaluate groundwater potential of the
study area. The Ramannapet Mandal area of Musi river basin is occupied mostly
by hard rock they are granites and gneisses of Archaean age with intrusive
bodies of dolerites, and of the portion of the study area is covered mainly by
both wet and dry cultivation. The major geomorphic unit identified in the area
are, Denudational hills, Residual hills, Inselbergs, Dykes, Pediment inselberg
complex, Pediment, Pediplain and valleys. Most part of the study area is
occupied by Pediplain with various thickness and the groundwater potential is
directly related to thickness of Pediplain.
object of the study is Remote Sensing imagery with its synoptic coverage acts
as a tool for finding suitable solution when combined with conventional data.
Hydro-geomorphic maps were prepared by integrating the Lithology, landforms,
and structural fabric and hydrology layers and drainage layers using Remote
Sensing and GIS techniques, the scale range of 1: 10,000. The lineament density
map was generated in GIS software using Kriging method (Sabins, F. F., (1997).
of the study Based on visual interpretation and field investigations the
different types of hydro geomorphic units observed in the study area. The
recent alluvium deposits are present along the stream courses. Field observations
shows that groundwater occurs under unconfined conditions with water table
shallow to deep depth. from the lineament density and lineament intersection
maps prepared to understand the impact on groundwater percolation. Finally,
Hydrogeomorphology and lineament maps area overlaid following the weighted
index overlay method, which delineate groundwater potential zones. an
integrated Remote sensing and GIS based approach has been used for demarcating
groundwater potential zones in the study area.
The study area Ramannapet Mandal is in northern part of the district of Nalgonda, Telangana State, India. The study area people occupation is agricultural, and poultry, 80 percent of the people depending only agricultural activity
