AN ANALYSIS OF MORPHOMETRIC AND HYPSOMETRIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THIRUMANIMUTHAR BASIN IN TAMIL NADU USING GIS.
The present study has been conducted to analysis the morphometric and hypsometric characteristics of Thirumanimuthar basin. The topographical variation data is necessary for the study of any basin, so the SRTM elevation contours have been downloaded as secondary data from the official website and it was used as a base for elevation model of the basin. The morphometric characters were identified using the calculation of linear, aerial and relief aspects of the basin, while hypsometric characteristics found using hypsometric integral and curve.
