Abstract

An attempt has been made to study the occurrence of floods in the two important river systems of north India, viz. Brahmaputra and Ganga. Both these river systems are located north of Lat. 22°N and lie in the longitudinal belt of north India from Long. 73°E to 97°E. Both these river systems are affected by floods during monsoon months of June-September. It has been seen after examining rainfall and floods of the period 1986-1999 that although variation of monsoon rainfall magnitudes received by these two basins differ considerably in each monsoon season, but by and large, the frequency of floods at their terminal gauge/discharge (G/D) sites at Dhubri and Farakka do not differ very much from each other.
