Abstract

The sequential changes in the position of banklines as a result of bank erosion, as well as various changes in the channel have been studied in the Subansiri river in Assam, India. The study was carried out from available topographic maps of 1920, 1970 and satellite imagery of 1990. The types of changes taking place in the Subansiri river channel are grouped into 4 categories. The river channel seems to make a remarkable change from a meandering pattern in 1920 towards a braided pattern by 1990 as seen from gradual increase in overall braiding intensity
