Abstract:

Morphometric analysis is and important and crucial parameter in watershed development and management programme. The present study is conducted on Baitarani basin upto Anandapur covering 8603.7 𝑘𝑚2 area. The morphometric analysis of the study area is done in GIS platform. Watershed delineation is done from ASTER DEM. In this paper three aspects of morphometric analysis i.e. linear, areal and relief aspects are carried out and pertinent results are discussed. The highest order stream of the area is found to be 5th order. The mean bifurcation ratio and length of overland flow of the study area are 4.4 and 2.28 km, respectively which indicate high surface runoff in the basin and late youth stage of geomorphic development of the basin. The drainage density, stream frequency and drainage texture are calculated as 0.219 km/km2, 0.039 km-2 and 0.409 km-1, respectively. Ruggedness value is 0.258.
