Abstract:   (32677 Views)
In this research, geomorphologic landforms of Darab region were identified and their geomorphotourism capability was evaluated. Satellite images, geological and topographic maps and field data were used for identification of geomorphological landforms and then the geomorphotourism capability of mentioned landforms were determined based on Praloong method. The results of this study reveal that there are six geomorphologic landforms in the study area. The mentioned landforms were ranked based on scores in Pralong method. Based on Praloong method, Darabgerd salt dome landform, due to archaeological worth, natural history and the existence of beautiful natural landscape around it, got the highest score, and therefore was identified as the most important geomorphotourism landform of Darab region.
