    Abstract

    Remote sensing can be used to define and delineate lineaments in an area. Remote sensing data and their applications are developing every day especially for geological applications. Lineaments together with the field studies, can give good results for use in other research such as mineral exploration, tectonic studies and landslide investigations. In this study, Landsat TM image covering the southwest part of Kelantan state was used to trace lineaments after correction and enhancements. Intense field work to measure geological structures (bedding, faults, joints and foliation) at selected stations in the area has also been done. Moreover, faults derive from previous studies were also used. Using stereographic and rose diagram date from imagery and field measurements the obtained directions were correlated. Data acquired from lineaments analysis of TM image and field measurement of the major fractures are coinciding and compatible. Lineaments in the area have two main trends in the NW-SE and NE-SW directions and a subordinate N-S trend. Lineaments traced from the image give a good correspondence with field and prior proved faults in many places, but with additional extend, hence faults should be longer than the length shown on the geology map. Lineaments implying suspected to be faults need further studies to prove this. This study emphasizes the importance of remote sensing data in structural geology studies.
