The atlas, “Geology from Space”, presents glimpses of the Earth Observation Satellite (EOS) – 04 (RISAT-1A) data, utilized to delineate diverse geological features. The Fine Resolution Stripmap (FRS), Medium Resolution ScanSAR (MRS) and Coarse Resolution ScanSAR (CRS) modes of EOS- 4 data were used to map geological structures such as faults, shear zones and lineaments, and landforms of glacial, fluvial, aeolian and coastal origins in various geological and geomorphological provinces. The Dual polarization images of EOS-4 (RISAT-1A) data were found to be useful for mapping features of geological significance and are illustrated in this atlas.
