Eddy Current Markings Back to Geo Tourism

Eddy Current Markings at Panchmahal district, Gujarat

Eddy Current Markings Eddy Current Markings at Panchmahal district, Gujarat are exposed in sedimentary (sandstone) surface of Upper Aravalli Lunavada Group of rocks. These marks are believed to result from dragging of a small limb of a larger floating log caught in a vortex or eddy current of a stream or from a movement of a pebble. The petrified marks of the eddies around the whirl balls, form spiralribs.

The area is located on the left bank of the Kadama Dam, Panchmahal district, at about 600 m downstream (southeast) on the right side of the approach road to the querry sites. The Kadama Dam is linked to the main towns of Rajasthan and Gujarat by roads and can be approached via Kherwara (NH-8). The nearest railheads are Dungarpur and Lunavada via Gothra.
