SURVEY OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS IN RAJASTHAN THROUGH AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS

THE PAPER DEALS WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AIRPHOTO PATTERNS FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF HIDDEN KANKAR AND DHANDLA DEPOSITS IN DESERT AREAS OF RAJASTHAN. AS A RESULT OF EXTENSIVE GROUND SURVEY AND COMPARATIVE STUDY OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF PART OF WESTERN RAJASTHAN COMPRISING AN AREA OF ABOUT 5,000 SQ. MILES (13,000 SQ. KM.), WELL-DEFINED AIRPHOTO PATTERNS FOR THE LOCATION OF CALCAREOUS DEPOSITS HAVE BEEN FORMULATED. USING THESE PATTERNS, 31 SITES OF LIKELY KANKAR AND 6 SITES OF LIKELY DHANDLA DEPOSITS HAVE BEEN SELECTED FROM THE AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS. FIELD CHECKING HAS REVEALED THAT 75 PERCENT OF THE SITES CONFIRM AIRPHOTO INTERPRETATION. /AUTHOR/
