Digital elevation models (DEMs) are increasingly used for visual analysis of topography, landforms, as well as modeling of surface processes. DEM of study area is generated form ASTER GDEM data of 30m resolution with the using software ARC GIS. The interpretation of the remote sensing data with conventional data and sufficient ground truth information makes possible to identify and delineate the various ground features such as geological structures, geomorphological features and their characters. The present aim of study is an attempt to delineate the geology and geomorphology in and around Gola block of Ramgargh district, Jharkhand, India, using integrated approach of Remote Sensing and GIS techniques especially ASTER DEM by observing the elevation, aspect, slope, lineament, and shaded relief of images. DEM has been an excellent supplementary information database for interpretations in the present study area along with other data.
