Ayg?r Lake is located within the limits of Adilcevaz and South side of Süphan Mountain. It is a typical maar lake formed by volcanic eruption in 1942 m. Elevation. There are new parasitic cones surroundings of the mountain occured by energy which is accumulated in magma. Maar lake are caused by a phreatomagmatic eruption, an explosion caused by groundwater coming into contact with hot lava or magma. Surroundings of the lake is largely covered with pyroclastic materials of Süphan Mountain. In the field located South side of Süphan Montain and North of Ayg?r lake there are tracitik and traki-dasit lave flow. On the South west of lake and around of Nernek Mountain lavas are seen in asidic feature. Carps, rainbow trout and chalcal burnus tarichi are fishes which can live in the lake and it is in a very importand position for local angling. Also wooded tract located in North side of the lake is useful for holiday resort. Morover this place is proper camping side for climber when they ascent of Süphan Mountain. In this study, we aimed to determine morphologic units of Ayg?r lake and its surroundings. Also we introduced issues caused by anthropogenic effects and modified general land use on these morphologic unit. Furthermore this study advertised tourizm potential and sustainable land use of the field by using cartoraphic, analytic and observation methods.
