Causes and Consequences of Channel Changes

This pain staking investigation and observation presenting an interactive as well as analytical interpretation on hydro-geomorphology and flow behavior of the lower course of Diana river in the Jaldhaka- Diana confluence zone of Jalpaiguri, West Bengal, is based on multitemporal analysis of remote sensing images and maps with a view to understand the landscape development and confluence dynamics. Channel confluences, especially for the rivers with high to very high seasonal discharge (both water and sediment), marked variation in altitude, and a sudden fall of slope from mountain to plain course, form an important component of the river systems as they influence the morphology and hydrology of the reaches upstream and downstream of the confluence.
