Abstract
Limnological investigations of a lake frequently require detailed information on morphometry, especially of the volume characteristics of the body of freshwater. Depth analyses, including estimation of areas of sediments and of water layers at different depths, volumes of layers, and shoreline characteristics, are regularly critical to detailed analyses of biological, chemical, and physical properties of freshwaters. Precise hydrographic maps of lakes and streams are seldom accessible in adequate detail for the limnologist. It is a trademark highlight that the morphometry of lakes and streams changes with time. Accordingly, the basics of the development of bathymetry maps and the computation of morphometric parameters are perceived. Garmin 178 sounder has been utilized to do a Bathymetry study and a Global positioning system (GPS) is utilized to register Longitude, latitude, and depth. These field data were utilized to create contour maps, morphometry maps, and base maps. Q-GIS and ArcGIS (10.1) spatial software were used to finalize the data evaluation. Some morphometric parameters calculated for Lake Pykara include mean depth (3.65 m), total lake area (3.82 sq km), and the volume (3443.79 Acre m) respectively.

Key words: Lake Pykara, Bathymetry, Morphometry, GPS Echo sounder
