Abstract :

Morphometric analysis provides us quantitative description of the basin. Morphometric analysis includes the linear aspects, areal aspects and relief aspects of a drainage basin through which a general perception about the physiography, geology, recent diastrophism, nature of rock material etc can be developed. In the present investigation various morphometric parameters of the LaxmiOdha basin are outlined. The Laxmi Odha basin is 6th order and its different morphometrical parameters are found to be useful for the proper land use planning and water resources management studies in the basin. Dendritic drainage pattern in the area shows that the area consists of homogeneous rock material, which is structurally undisturbed. The Basin is passing through an early mature stage to old stage of the fluvial geomorphic cycle. The elongation and circulatory ratio reveals that the Laxmi Odha basin is highly elongated and flood flows are easier to manage than that of circulatory basins.
