Title: Imprints of the Ninety-East Ridge in the Shillong Plateau, Indian Shield
Authors: Gupta R.P.
Sen A.K.
Published in: Tectonophysics
Abstract: A few nearly N-S trending and extensive post-Precambrian lineaments have been observed on Landsat images and aerial photographs of the Shillong Plateau, Indian Shield. These lineaments are associated with an alkaline-ultramafic-carbonatite suite of rocks of seemingly Cretaceous age. It is inferred that the N-S trending lineaments and the associated carbonatite intrusives are genetically related to the Ninety-East Ridge in the Indian Ocean. Further, these lineaments appear to be important in governing the neotectonic activity in the area. © 1988.
