Abstract

Snowmelt runoff in the mountainous eastern part of Turkey is of great importance as it constitutes 60-70% in volume of the total yearly runoff during spring and early summer months. Therefore, determining the amount and timing of snowmelt runoff especially in the Euphrates basin, where large clams are located, is ail important tusk in order to use the water resources of the country in an optimal manner.
