Quantitative Morphometric Analysis of Bhadar River Basin, India using ASTER (GDEM) Data and GIS

Vishnu Dayal, Jyoti Sarup


The present study highlights the morphometric parameters of Bhadar River, located in state of Gujarat, India. In this study, ASTER Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM) and Geographical Information System (GIS) have been taken to evaluate Linear and Areal aspects of different morphometric parameters using ArcGIS software. The study is mainly focused on morphometric analysis which revealed that the Bhadar River Basin is from first to seventh orders with dendritic type of drainage pattern. The results show that the drainage density of the Basin has been obtained low which indicates drainage texture is very coarse in nature. The result of Elongation ratio explore that the Basin is less elongated. Bifurcation ratio values of Bhadar River Basin have experience minimum structural disturbances.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
