AbstractThe hydrogeomorphology of Wadi Al-Meleh basin studied quantitatively using remote sensing data .The studied area is located at northern part of Iraq.
The stages of the study included a preparation of geomorphological maps, followed by morphometric analysis of twenty-two variables.
These variables represent climatical, hydrogeological and geomorphological factors for five major sub basins that form Wadi Al-Meleh.
The statistical analysis of correlation and regression of these variables applied where amount of runoff from these basins as dependent variable and the other variables as independent.
Results shown models, which can be used for the prediction of the rate of flow of this basin from other selected variables.
