Abstract:

Geospatial technologies i.e. Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) are found to be very essential tools for geographical and geospatial studies. RS and GIS were adopted for the determination of morphological characteristics of the Chiplun tehsil of Maharashtra, India. It was found that, there were 1362 micro watersheds in Chiplun tehsil covering an area of 1119.95 km2. Several morphometric parameters were computed and analyzed viz. linear aspects such as stream order, stream number, stream length, mean stream length, stream length ratio; areal aspects such as drainage density, stream frequency, drainage texture, elongation ratio, circularity ratio, form factor, constant of channel maintenance; relief aspects such as relief, relief ratio, relative relief, ruggedness number and length of overland flow. It was concluded that, morphometric analysis of a watershed is a quantitative way of describing the characteristics of the surface form of a drainage pattern and provides important information about the region’s topography and runoff.
