Analysis of Morphometric Characteristics of Vamanapuram River Basin, Kerala
G. Manoj, Dr. R. Anilkumar
Abstract: . Morphometric analysis is an integral part of geomorphological studies. It can provide vital clues concerning the landscape evolution. The present paper examines the implications different morphometric parameters of the Vamanapuram River Basin including laws of stream order, stream length, and basin area, bifurcation ratio, drainage density, elongation ratio, circularity ratio etc. The Vamanapuram river basin is extends between 80 35 to 80 51 north latitudes and 760 45 to 77012 east longitudes. The Vamanapuram River rises on the peak Chemmunji Mottai, located at an altitude of 1717m above mean sea level and debouches into Arabian sea through Muthalapozhi estuary. Morphometry, landscape evolution, Vamanapuam River Basin, estuary, drainage density.
