Abstract:

Morphometric analysis is important in any hydrological investigation and it is inevitable in development and management of drainage basin. Geographical Information System and image processing techniques can be employed for the identification of morphological features and analyzing properties of basin. The morphometric parameters of basin can address linear, areal and relief aspects. Database has been prepared in ArcGIS 10.5 desktop application for certain significant of morphometric parameters analysis. The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) 30 meter data were used for preparation of DEM, and drainage network. Study area is Maniari sub-watershed, geographically located between 21011’0” and 21034’0” N latitudes and 81028’30” and 81057’30” E longitudeslocated in Mungeli district of Chhattisgarh state in India. The Maniari sub-watershed covers an area of about 31.33 km2 and has 4th order streams were calculated by using GIS environment. Total number of streams were 114, in which 90 was found to be in first order, 19 was in second order, 4 was in third order and 1 was in fourth order streams. The length of stream segment is maximum for first order stream and decreases as the stream order increases. The drainage density (Dd) of study area was 1.684 km km-2. This study would help the local people to utilize the resources for sustainable development of the basin area.
