The aim of this study is assessing and mapping landslide susceptibility in watershed of semiarid mountain areas. Saeedabad-chai Watershd is located on the northwest of Iran and the North of Sahand Mountain. This study is using Bivariate Statistical Analysis (BSA)، weights-of-evidence (WOE)،GIS. The results of this assessment show that causative factors as slope (∑wƒ= + 3.965)، landuse(∑wƒ= + 0.759)، distance of road(∑wƒ= + 1.498)، lithology (∑wƒ= + 0.424)، rainfall (∑wƒ= + 0.388)، distance of rural (∑wƒ= + 0.161) play a major role in the landslide occurrence.There is a negetive relationship between landslides and distance of fault (∑wƒ= - 0.006) and distance of channel (∑wƒ= - 0.325) in the Saeedabad-chai Watershd. The medium، high and very high susceptbility zones make up 43.116 % of the total study area. The acuuracy of the map was evaluated by( Li) index. This index shows that 92% of landslides occure on medium، high and very high susceptbility zone.
