[SSS08-P27] Active fault mapping along the southern margin of the Himalayas by interpretation of ALOS 30 DEM image

*Takashi Nakata1, Yasuhiro Kumahara2, Hideaki Goto2 (1.Emeritus Professor, Hiroshima University, 2.Hiroshima University)

Keywords:Himalaya, active fault, ALOS 30

ALOS 30 DEM is 30m grid DEM freely provided worldwide. We compare image of the DEM with air-photo for mapping of active faults along the southern margin of the Himalayas. Resolution of anaglyph image of the DEM is much less than that of 1:50000 scale air-photo, but it is enough for interpretation of active fault.
