Abstract

The main objective of this study is Miankaleh shoreline displacement against Caspian rapid sea level changing and anthropogenic impact. The morphological subunits and shoreline position have been recognized by comparing and processing of aerial photos related to 2 periods of expanded Caspian Sea level fluctuation(1966–2005). Then observational works and surface geology have been done along the eight transects from extremity of western to eastern of mentioned area. Main results show the tendency of flooding vulnerability and shoreline displacement increase at the end of eastern region of Miankaleh near Ashooradeh peninsula where there is an interaction with Caspian rapid sea level changing. In the direction of west, shoreline deformation degree declines gradually.
