MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the numeric data of the Zeytinli stream Basin's, which is located on the Kaz (Mt. Ida) Mountain massif in the North of Edremit Gulf, elevation - area - volume statistics, elevation levels, hypsographic curve values, profile series, drainage type, length and longitudinal profiles, bed slope values, bifurcation ratio, drainage density and frequency, SL index, stream size gradient, and asymmetry factors considered thalweg reconstructions was formed by using ArcGIS Desktop program with the help of numeric integration method. In these applications 1:25.000 scale topographic maps were based. In addition to this, all the analysis, calculations and evaluations were conducted in computers, too. The aim of the study is to search of the geomorphological evolution and development which is occured in the river basin via analysis and calculation. The other aim of the study is to expose the characteristics of displacement - development by making table, graphic and maps with the gathered data of analysis and calculation. In the conclusion of the study, it is shown that the effects of the different denudational process and tectonic activity have a big role in the formation of geomorphological characteristics of Zeytinli Stream Basin.
