This dataset contains data on geomorphological characteristics and flow-related variables along the Beas River (Punjab, India) between Pong dam and Harike barrage in January 2020. The variables provided include cross-sectional area, water depth, river channel width, river flow velocity and dry-season discharge measured at ten reference sites with stable banks and straight, linear channels without islands or other mid-channel structures.,The data was generated from direct measurements of river width, water depth and flow velocity. The measurements were taken through a boat-based survey along a chainage distance of 102 km using a handheld acoustic depth and a cup-type water current meter with a digital recorder providing direct velocity indication.,
