English: Basin in Earth sciences may refer to:
- (hydrology/hydrography) drainage basin/catchment basin/watershed, a topographic region in which all water drains to a common area, so this is the connected area of flowing and still overground water, leading to a lowermost point. You may also be looking for drainage divides, the line that separates neighboring drainage basins.
- (sedimentology) sedimentary basin, a low and usually sinking region that is filled with sediments from adjacent positive areas
- (structural geology) structural basin, a large-scale structural formation of rock strata formed by tectonic warping of previously flat lying strata (e.g., a graben)
