A Case Study: Morphometric Characteristics of Sub-Watershed (P-17) in Paras Region, Akola District, Maharashtra, India – using Remote Sensing & GIS

Shah, K.C., Pranay, R. Pali, (doi: 10.23953/cloud.ijaese.236)


In this study, an attempt has been made to understand the morphometric characteristics of surrounding of Paras thermal power plant, using remote sensing and GIS techniques. The main objective of this study is to give priority for river sub-watershed (P-17) development by determining the morphometric parameters. This study involves drainage network delineation and morphometric parameters determination, using onscreen digitization on 1:50,000 topographic maps through GIS environs.

*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.
