Abstract The Kameng River in the NE India cuts through the rising Siwaliks, the frontal ranges of the Himalaya and forms four levels of alluvial terraces. The geomorphic configuration and overlying alluvial cover of each terrace has been studied to decipher the uplift history of the Himalayan front and varying sedimentation pattern of the river. The ratio (SA ratio) of the thicknesses of alluvial cover and bedrock strath is used as a measure of geomorphic instability (GI) and a GI-Index has… CONTINUE READING
