Morphometric Analysis of River Catchments Using Remote Sensing and GIS (A Case Study of the Sukri River, Rajasthan)
      Narender Kumar
Abstract: Remote Sensing techniques with GIS were used to study the two sub-catchments of the upper catchment of Sukri River, Luni River basin. The measurement and analysis for the two sub-catchments were carried by using GIS for linear, areal and relief aspects. Both sub-catchments have low permeability, high surface run-off, and control of geologic structure. The morphometic analysis and measurements at sub-catchment level depicted that a good relationship existed among the morphometric parameters and the terrain characteristics. Out of both sub-catchments, sub-catchment 2 has more balanced aspects in respect to the sub-catchment 1. The analysis and measurement of basin morphometric aspects and their parameters in GIS will be of immense utility in river basin evolution, understanding the basin for natural resources assessment, planning and management at any scale. Out of two sub-catchments, sub-catchment 2 is more prone for planning, management, and assessment in respect to the sub-catchment 1.
