Ph.D ongoing in Department of Geography 2015 onwards (Central University of Sikkim, India). Assessment of the Catchment Flow Variability of Teesta River Basin in Sikkim. Hydrologic studies and its linkages to the socio economic and environmental bearings have been scarce in the Himalayan state of Sikkim. The present study assesses the changes in hydrologic regime of the 4657 Sqkm Teesta-Dikchu watershed ( name given for the present study) located 88°13’E, 28°12N’ to 88°51’ E to 27°20’N, by the construction of the Teesta V hydroelectric power project. The study uses the SWAT hydrological model to generate a 30 years of continues time series flow data (calibrated and validated) and the Indicators of Hydrologic Alteration (IHA) as an analysis tool to understand the changes. Thus the highest hydrologic alteration factors of Teesta V dam construction pre and post construction are seen as the median of monthly flow indicating a decreasing trend compared to the pre dam construction period.
