Quantitative morphometric analysis of the watershed of Baki Basin, Eastern Anatolian using GIS methods

Halil Gunek


After a brief presentation of the Baki catchment, the drainage network is analyzed using the Horton – Strahler classification system. From the amount of morphometric parameters, the drainage and the surface patterns, like relief and slope, are taken into consideration for the entire Baki watershed. Based on the analyzed patterns, a series of morphometric parameters specific to the stream network in the Eastern Anatolia which is part of Uluova stream and also Euphrates River were calculated and analyzed. All the values used in parameters equations and quantitative characterizations were extracted using ArcGIS 10.2.

Key words: GIS, Morphometric analysis, Elazığ, Baki Stream
