Murat

 

(also Murad), a river in eastern Turkey; a principal headstream of the Euphrates. Length, more than 600 km; basin area, about 40,000 sq km. Rising on the slopes of the Ala Dag massif, the Murat flows across the Armenian Highland through a narrow, deep valley. There is high water in the spring, but the water level is low the remainder of the year. In the winter, sections of the river with a slow current freeze over. The Murat, which is not navigable, has a large reservoir in its lower course. The river is used for irrigation and floating timber. The city of Karaköse is located on the Murat.
