The Assi river in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India, is now a small, local, ephemeral floodplain tributary of River Ganga, with a length of about 8 km and catch- ment area of about 22 km2. It has also turned into a filthy drain. There are evidences in the form of palaeochannels, through patterns of water bodies and settlements along them, to suggest the origin of Assi river near Allahabad flowing through a distance of about 120 km up to Varanasi to meet the Ganga.There is also the possibility that Assi started as a take-off from River Ganga and flowed as a Yazoo stream. Through on-screen digitization from high and medium-resolution remote sensing data – BHUVAN and Google Earth, CORONA aerial photographs, IRS P6 LISS-IV, Landsat 1, 3, 5, 7, 8 – and a number of cross profiles from SRTM 30 m digital elevation model (DEM), palaeochannel of Assi been delineated (Current Science 25 Feb.2020)
