According to the analysis results the watershed height, especially at Yanda? and Maymunda? had increased and in both mountains the average elevation was over 1500 meters. Watershed areas over 1500 m elevation cover approximately 10 % of the areas. The plateau areas follow the watershed floor and cover approximately 35% of the area. The height levels of the plateau areas are between 1000 and 1500 meters. In a significant part of the watershed (55%) the elevation varies between 800 and 1000 meters and correspond to the depression floor. The gradient values at the summit and slope sections of Yanda? and Maymunda?? are in excess of 45% and cover 20% of the watershed area. Segments with 36-45% gradients correspond to the foot segments of the mountainous areas which do not cover very large areas. Areas with gradient values varying between 10% and 30% correspond to the plateau areas covering 25% of the total area. Areas with low gradient correspond to the depression floor areas (5%). According to watershed exposure analysis, it was observed that the exposure direction varied at very short intervals due to factors such as the fragmentation of the topography and abrupt increases in gradient and elevation values. In addition, the morphological forms were classified according to main morphological units and formation processes and interpreted.
