Résumé partiel
The present study was carried out to developed time and cost eflfective approach for mapping the arid lands using the remotely sensed data together with the gravity data for the three dimensional mapping of the geology. The programme of the study was chosen with arid bias in order to developed expert system for utilisation backhome in the arid lands of Libya In order to achieve the objective of the present study, the scope of the present work was restricted to geological mapping using remotely sensed data both in visual and digital modes. The surface geology was interpreted from the remotely sensed data across the geo-traverse from Bijianagar in the east to Pali in the west, covering the Archaean and Proterozoic rocks from Bhilwara in the south to Amargarh in the north . The third dimension was mapped using gravity data together with the density of the crustal lithologies measured across the geo-traverses and assigned to the subcrust. The remote sensing data both in digital mode and the hard copy FCC were used in this study The digital data were processed for selective windows over the Aravalli Mountain Range (AMR). The processing and interpretation of the two windows of the IRS-IB data were used as a key for the visual interpretation of the study area The digital data from IRS-IB LISS-II covering parts of the study area were processed and interpreted during the course of this study. Since the aim of this study is to interpret the geology, geomorphology and the microlineament of the study area, the windows which having high density outcrops were chosen for detailed study. These windows cover the main orogrphic axis of the AMR.
