Kaladan Fault


Kaladan Fault marked the eastern boundary of the Mizoram-Tripura-Chittagong folded belt and bears the important clue to the tectonic evolution of the whole folded area. The fault trends north-east-south-west along the Kaladan river of Arakan coast. It extends from latitude 20'30'N to 22'20'N and covers a distance of almost 270 km. This long fault is traceable and identified on satellite images. On the basis of faulting nature and pattern it is termed as a' transformed fault. [ASM Woobaidullah]
