The present study is based on morphometric analysis of watersheds from the "Iron Gates" Natural Park. Morphometric parameters of a river basin are influenced by a series of biotic and abiotic factors. This aspect makes the morphometric analysis very useful in describing the river systems and offers an image of all the interactions and processes that define the geoecological potential of running waters ecosystems. The parameters used in morphometric analysis are a good alternative for
