Abstract: In this study has researched to effect of climate change emerging as a result of global warming in Susurluk Basin in west of Turkey and in Van Lake Closed Basin in east of Turkey. This research was conducted on annual mean temperature and precipitation data of both basins. Innovative Sen method was used to make analyses with these data. As a result of study, an increasing trend has been observed in three regions of temperature data of both basins. When precipitation data was examined, it was observed that there was an increase in high region in precipitation of Susurluk Basin. In medium region, an increasing trend for three stations, a decreasing trend for one station and no trend for three stations were observed in medium region. Also, no trend was generally observed on low region. In Van Lake Closed Basin, a trend of decrease was observed in general in precipitation.
