原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)The Indo-Gangetic basin exhibits highly diverse hydro-geomorphic settings that influence the hydrology, sediment production, and transport rates of the rivers draining this region, and this, in turn, is manifested in morphometric diversity of river systems. The rivers draining the western Gangetic plains (WGP) show incised channels attributable to high stream power and low sediment yield. In contrast, the rivers draining the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP) have formed aggradational landforms such as megafans due to low stream power and high sediment yield. For a better process understanding of the causal factors of such spatial inhomogeneities in a river basin, a morphometric characterization of its hinterland is necessary. In this work, a set of morphometric parameters such as...
