Flood is a natural disaster making the heavy humanistic and economic damages each year in most parts of Iran. In this research, the SWAT model performance in flood prediction and sub-basin priority was investigated in terms of flooding in Araz-Kose watershed in Golestan province. To calibrate the model, SUFI2 was applied. The calibration and validation were done for the 1991-1998 period based on the data of 2001-2009. After validation, the indices (R2, bR2, and NS) were estimated. They were equal to 0.81, 0.81 and 0.73 for calibration and 081, 0.78 and 0.64 for validation, respectively. The sensitivity analysis results showed 13 effective parameters. The curve number (CN2) was determined as the most effective parameter. For studying the flooding in a watershed, the Araz-Kose watershed was divided into six parts. Based on the obtained results from the SWAT model with different CN and F indexes (with/without considering the sub-watershed), the sixth sub-basin with 22.4% decrease in discharge was chosen as the most effective region in flooding. Meanwhile, the other sub-basins including 4, 1, 3, 5 and 2 had more flood potential, respectively.
