Comparative Assessment of the Changing Morphometry of River Dhalai & Land use pattern of Kamalpur Town and Halhuli Village, Tripura, India

Srijib Basak, Saswati Rudrapal


Abstract: The research work is an attempt to analyse from both perspective of geography viz. the physical portion where we determine the channel pattern and measuring the shifting course of Dhalai river as well as in the social portion where we compare the changing land use pattern of last few decades through 16 cross section of Kamalpur town and Halhuli Village. The study area is situated in the extreme northern part of Dhalai District and also the state of Tripura. For assessment of the morphometric change mainly the channel pattern and channel shifting, we used Sinuosity index, Braiding Index and also calculate the percentage of area had already being shifted from 1970 to 2015. On the other hand, the changing land use pattern along the river had been analysed by creating diagram based on some cross section and represent the relation of land use pattern with the elevation. The result of this research is positively related to each other from its both perspectives. Basically the entire research work is based on secondary source of data from different sectors and Google earth along with door to door survey, GPRS reading and selection of study area through ground observation.
