dc.description.abstract Results of six profiles of continuous echosounding, magnetic and gravity data collected across the continental margin of the east coast of India between 10 degrees and 20 degrees N in the Bay of Bengal aboard R.V. Chain in 1973 are presented. Continuity of surface and subsurface features from profile to profile is indicated. Two major structural elements - viz. The "Marginal High", situated at the foot of the continental slope and extending along the east coast of India, and the "Marginal Basin", wide in the south becoming narrower towards the north - have been delineated. Based on the topography and the gravity and the magnetic anomalies, the eastern margin of India may be divided into two parts, viz. the southern and northern margins. The southern margin is broader and more stable than the northern margin, over which lava flows occur
