The area around the village Devidhura (79°52'22" : 29°25'30") covering about 250 square miles forms the subject matter of the present study. Two major tectonic units-the Almora nappe and the Krol nappe-separated by the Ladhiya Thrust can be recognized in the area. Crystallines corresponding to the Almora nappe have been thrusted over the sedimentary quartzites (resembling Nagthats) of the Krol nappe.

Abstract


The area around the village Devidhura (79°52'22" : 29°25'30") covering about 250 square miles forms the subject matter of the present study. Two major tectonic units-the Almora nappe and the Krol nappe-separated by the Ladhiya Thrust can be recognized in the area. Crystallines corresponding to the Almora nappe have been thrusted over the sedimentary quartzites (resembling Nagthats) of the Krol nappe.
