Basin Morphometry of Bunbuni River, Chotanagpur Plateau, In India

Sumitra Mandi, Kalicharan Soren


Abstract: Morphometric analysis is refers as the quantitative assessment of appearance distinctiveness of the terrain surface and any landform unit. This is the most common procedure in basin analysis, as morphometry form an ideal areal unit for interpretation and analysis of fluvially originated landforms The Bunbuni river basin is a sub - basin of the mighty River Kiur which is situated in parts of Giridih & Munger districts of Jharkhand and Bihar. Total area of the study area is 58.75 Km. In the study area shows sub dendritic to dendritic drainage pattern. The watershed was classified as 5th order drainage basin. Different methods of morphometric analysis have been adopted here which covers the linear, areal, and relief aspects as a whole. The drainage density (Dd) of the basin is 1.89 km-1 the stream frequency of the basin is 2.94.


Keywords: Morphometric analysis, Drainage density, Stream frequency, dendritic drainage pattern, Bunbuni river basin
