Abstract.  The Quantitative fluvial characteristics   of the Jamunia  river basin- has been discussed  under  linear,  areal  and relief  aspects.  The above  basin  is comprised  of two smaller  sub-basin,  the Jamunia  nala and  the  Baruan nala  sub-basins.    The entire   drainage   network   is spread    over   laterites,   stromatolitic    limestone   and   shales.   The limestones   of the  area  are  karstic  in nature.The  available  morphometric    data  ot  the  basin  under  investigation are in agreement   with  Horton's  (1945),  Strahler (1~52),  in respect  of law of stream  order,  stream  number  and length.  The  bifurcation ratio is 3.85  which  indicates   the  mature  stage  of their  development.    The drainage density  of the  basin  is 0.  13km/km which  classifies  it as low  density   and ·coarse texture.   The  low value  of  stream  frequency   · (0.405  km/km2)    indicates   that  the stream  flows  over  flat opography. The shape  parameters  as form  factor  (0.281 }, Circularity ratio  (o.46), Basin  elongation  (0.59)  and Lemniscate  (1.0),  suggests  that the basinrs elongated   in shape.

Keywords:    Drainage.   nala.  Basin.
