Abstract


River is playing an important role in landform development, its shapes the structure of area. River process is a natural phenomenon supported by many agents such as precipitation. It has participated role in changing river behaviour, rainfall contributes in the volume of water and work as an agent in erosional process. Carrying scientific study to understand the characteristics of the area, river is one of the assets which describe the aspects and phenomenon related to Landforms. With the help of remote sensing & GIS, we can extract all the physical information of river, called morphometric parameters. The Singki river catchment accumulated an area of 79.8 Km2 and has elevation 2353 metre; the rugged and irregular terrain surface shapes Dendritic drainage pattern.

*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.
