What is Drainage density?

Drainage density is the total length of all the streams and rivers in a drainage basin divided by the total area of the drainage basin. It is a measure of how well or how poorly a watershed is drained by stream channels.

How to Calculate Drainage Density?

Drainage Density calculator uses Drainage Density=Length of all Streams of the Catchment/Catchment Area to calculate the Drainage Density, The Drainage Density is defined as the total length of all the streams and rivers in a drainage basin divided by the total area of the drainage basin. Drainage Density and is denoted by Dd symbol.

How to calculate Drainage Density using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Drainage Density, enter Length of all Streams of the Catchment (Lsb) and Catchment Area (A) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Drainage Density calculation can be explained with given input values -> 3636.364 = 80000/22.

FAQ

What is Drainage Density?
The Drainage Density is defined as the total length of all the streams and rivers in a drainage basin divided by the total area of the drainage basin and is represented as Dd=Lsb/A or Drainage Density=Length of all Streams of the Catchment/Catchment Area. Length of all Streams of the Catchment and Catchment Area is an area of land where all water flows to a single stream, river, lake or even ocean.
How to calculate Drainage Density?
The Drainage Density is defined as the total length of all the streams and rivers in a drainage basin divided by the total area of the drainage basin is calculated using Drainage Density=Length of all Streams of the Catchment/Catchment Area. To calculate Drainage Density, you need Length of all Streams of the Catchment (Lsb) and Catchment Area (A). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Length of all Streams of the Catchment and Catchment Area and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
