Morphometric Analysis using Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques in the Bagain River Basin, Bundelkhand Region, India


Objectives: Morphometry is a measurement and mathematical analysis of landforms. The main objective of the study is to calculate the morphometric parameters of the Bagain river basin. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Remote Sensing (RS), Geographical Information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) proved to be an efficient tool in our modern geographical and geological studies that are been used in the study. Basin morphometry shows numerical analysis or mathematical quantification of different aspects of a drainage basin. In this study Bagain river basin has been selected for morphometric characterization which is a tributary of river Yamuna. The morphometric analysis includes aspects as linear, areal and relief. Findings: The region is covered with high altitude Vindhyan hills. There is a large number of drainage systems originated from south and goes to north and downpours in the Yamuna River. The method applied to the river basin gave a recent calculation of the morphometric parameters of the region. Application/Improvements: The present study gives an account of information about drainage pattern, stream behaviour and morphometric setting of drainage within the network helping for watershed management.
