Morphometric Analysis of Daluaghat Drainage basin in Giridih District, Jharkhand, India

Sumitra Mandi [3] | Kalicharan Soren [3]

Abstract: The word morphometry sanity the measurements and analysis of outward appearance and its properties. In perspective of geomorphology which is science of landforms it is apprehensive with the different geometrical aspects of the landforms. Morphometric analysis of Daluaghat basin was conceded. The basin morphometric parameters such as linear and aerial aspects of the river basin were determined and computed. The parameters considered for analysis are stream length, bifurcation ratio, drainage density, stream frequency, Drainage texture, form factor circularity ratio, elongation ratio, compactness ratio etc. The Daluaghat basin has a dendritic to parallel drainage pattern. It is the 5th order drainage basin. Dendritic drainage pattern in the area reveals that the area developed of homogeneous rock material, which is structurally undisturbed. Logarithm of number of stream vs stream order and length of stream segment vs stream order were computed in the basin area.

Keywords: Daluaghat basin, Morphometric parameters, Landforms, Dendritic drainage pattern
