Abstract

The study was carried out to estimate some watershed characteristics (e.g., circularity ratio, elongation ratio, form factor and compaction ratio, drainage density, stream frequency, drainage intensity) of Basin of Murat Mountain in Turkey to contribute identification and management of the watershed. For this purposes, inventorial data such as topographical and forest maps collected from local and national foundations of the area together with field stage of the study was used by Geographical Information Systems (GIS) based on conversion in Arc Info software to estimate current and potential status of the watershed.
