Summary/Abstract: Bulanık-Malazgirt Basin (Muş) exists in the middle of this section and in the “Upper Murat-Van Section “ of Eastern Anatolia Region. Bulanık-Malazgirt Basin (Muş) is included Euphrates River drainage basin hydrographically and it exists in downstream of Murat River at the top of this basin. Waters of the region are discharged to Euphrates River and from there to Persian Gulf by Murat River and its arms. Hydrographic properties of the basin were shaped by climate, geology and geomorphological factors of the field. The hydrographic properties of Bulanık-Malazgirt Basin (Muş) that exist in an important position in the Eastern Anatolia Region were’nt searced geographically. The purpose of this work in this framework, The hydrographic properties of Bulanık-Malazgirt Basin are to search geographically. In accordance with this purpose, Digital Elevation Model (DEM), digital topography maps, geological maps and numerical hydrographic data field of examination were analyzed with Geographical Information Systems (GIS). In addition to analyzes related to flow quantities and regimes of rivers were made with data of the flow monitoring stations of DSİ and analyzes of underground waters were made with Malazgirt, Bulanık and Patnos Plain Hydrological Survey Report (1978). At the end of work frequency of streaming web in Bulanık- Malazgirt Basin is not the same everywhere. The basin is fertile in terms of drainage types and climate conditions are decisive on the flow-regime conditions. Plains and basin floors are fertile in terms of groundwater.
