Hydrological Analysis of Murat River Basin
Warvin Hussein FATTAH, Mehmet Ishak YUCE

The overall objective of this study is to determine a practical rainfall-runoff relationship for the Murat River Basin by the linear method. The Murat River is the largest tributary of the Euphrates River situated within the borders of Turkey. The hydrologic characteristics of the basin were determined by employing the standard digital elevation model (DEM) and geographic information systems (GIS). The annual average discharge of the stream flow was acquired from seven flow measurement stations (FMS), while the annual total precipitation data was obtained from nineteen precipitation measurement stations (PMS) located within and in the vicinity of the basin. The rainfall-runoff coefficient for the whole basin was found to be around 0.6.
