    INTRODUCTION: Tectonic geomorphology is defined as the study of landforms produced by tectonic processes, or the application of geomorphic principles to the solution of tectonic problems (Keller, E.A. and Pinter N. 1996). Geological structure plays a crucial role in determining a wide field of relief forms, even in areas where exogenetic factors are regarded as the dominant ones in the landscape (Ahnert 1998; Bloom 1998; Ritter et al. 2002). In recent years Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data and

    The Concept of Equilibrium in Geomorphology INTRODUCTION The concept of equilibrium in geomorphology as a theory to explain landform evolution was first tabled by American geologist Grove Karl Gilbert. He was born on May 6, 1843 in Rochester, New York, United States of America. (Pyne &Stephen,1980) He was also one of the founders of the modern study of geomorphology. Howard,1988 said “Gilbert’s concept of equilibrium is also known as the principle of least force or Gilbert’s theory” (Howard,1988)

    Drainage Density and Stream Order in a Drainage Basin Drainage Density represents an approach to the quantitative analysis of drainage basin. It is the average length of channel per unit area of the drainage basin. It is calculated as shown below. Drainage density is a qualitative analysis of the areal properties of a river basin . Drainage density is useful as a measure of frequency and spacing of streams within the drainage basin. It also helps to determine the texture of dissection
