Abstract: Dakshina kannada district is situated in peninsular region. The peninsula is composed of geologically ancient rocks of diverse original and most of them have undergone metamorphism. The early Precambrian tonalitic gneisses invaded by granites, granulites and dolerite dykes. Granulites are mostly restricted to areas south of Mangalore. High grade alumina rich (corundum bearing) metamorphic schists have been encountered and younger alkaline intrusive rocks like Aegerine syenites have been reported. There are five rivers and estuaries. Number of lineaments cut across each other and some lineaments are parallel to each other. The Arabian sea class is the largest among other land cover features in the study area. The river/tidal creek land cover appear as long irregular and sinous in outline. Mulki river, Netravati river, Gurupur river at southern terrain. The qualities of groundwater at sandy aquifer are good, lateritic/weathered gneissic rocks it is sweet. 2012 CAFET-INNOVA TECHNICAL SOCIETY.
