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.
    • (geography) endorheic basin, a closed drainage basin often with a sink where water collects
  • (geomorphology) rock-cut basin, any depressions cut into stream or river beds.
  • (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)
    • oceanic basin, a structural basin covered by seawater (long narrow undersea depressions are oceanic trenches)
    • pull-apart basin, a section of crust separated by the action of two strike-slip faults or the flexure of a transform fault
