Because geographical situation, geologic and geomorphologic conditions and
historical background from economic, social and cultural point of view, Iran is a
disastrous country in worldwide. In spite of advances in geomorphology in Iran in
recent decades, relation of this field of geography to Natural disasters is not making
clear still. This paper attempt to investigate of geomorphologic dimensions of some
natural disasters occurred in recent years in our country, and importance of the
incorporation not only of geomorphologic research, but also of geomorphologies in
risk assessment and management programs in Iran is emphasized.
Studies on some natural disasters such as landslides, sandy storms, earthquakes and
etc. indicate that this natural disasters lead to geomorphic problems from two aspects:
first, natural hazards produce special geomorphic landforms and second, active
geomorphologic agents are origin of natural disasters occurring. Indeed
geomorphology is a powerful field that must play a role in the interdisciplinary efforts
to develop adequate strategies for prevention and mitigation of natural disasters.
