Geography

Location

Iran borders Turkey in the northwest, Armenia , Azerbaijan , the Caspian Sea and Turkmenistan in the north, Afghanistan in the east, Pakistan in the southeast, the Gulf of Oman in the south, the Persian Gulf in the southwest and Iraq in the west.

Iran extends from the Ararat Highlands and the eastern edge of Mesopotamia between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf over most of the Iranian Highlands. In the north, the Elbursgebirge in Demawend reaches 5,671 m above sea level, in the south the border mountains in the Zagros Mountains, which stretch from the Ararat highlands to the south-east to the Persian Gulf, reach more than 4,500 m.

In between, there are basins chambered by mountain ranges without drainage, some of which are almost completely devoid of vegetation. These inland deserts form a 1,000 km long and 200–400 km wide belt that is bounded in the east by mountains running from north to south. They are covered with rubble, drifting sand or salt clay (Dasht-e Kawir, Dasht-e Lut [ Lut ]). At 250 m above sea level, the Lut desert is the deepest depression in the highlands of Iran and one of the most extreme, hottest deserts on earth.

Basalt mountains and volcanic cones, especially in the north and west of the country, as well as frequent, severe earthquakes are evidence of active tectonic activity, especially in the peripheral mountains in the north (border between the Iranian and the Eurasian plate) and south (the Iranian and the Arabian plate). An earthquake in the south-east of the country destroyed the city of Bam (Kerman province) on December 26, 2003 and killed around 35,000 people.

Climate

The foothills in the west and south receive winter rain, so that farming without irrigation is possible. The lowlands on the Caspian Sea and the northern flank of the Elbe receive abundant rainfall in all seasons. Accordingly, the Gilan , Masenderanand Golestan landscapes are among the most densely populated areas of Iran. The highlands of Iran belong to the great dry belt of the earth. Agricultural use there is only possible in oases with the help of artificial irrigation.

The summers in the central highlands are dry and very hot, in the lowlands of the Persian Gulf muggy and hot. The winters are mild only in the south and in the desert basins below sea level, in the northern edge mountains and in the high valleys in the northwest, on the other hand, severe with several months of snow cover.

All of Central Iran’s large desert basins have no drainage; the rivers coming from the foothills dry up in the rubble or form shallow periodic end lakes over the salt flats when the snow melts. The short rivers flowing into the Caspian Sea or Persian Gulf have a strongly fluctuating water flow. Only a few can be regulated by dams and used for the inland water supply.

However, in the last three decades the construction of many dams, the expansion of artificial irrigation, higher groundwater abstraction in metropolitan areas and frequent droughts have dried up rivers, destroyed wetlands and emptied groundwater reservoirs. In the Tehran region, the ground is sinking over a large area. The heavy loss of water from Lake Urmia set in motion state rescue measures. Iran is affected more than average by global warming. Check thenailmythology to see Iran As a Tourism Country.

Wildlife

The very different habitats in Iran have given rise to a species-rich fauna. The most important distribution areas for birds, including birds of prey such as eagles and vultures, as well as mammals, are the north of Iran, the sparse forest areas and the deserts of the highlands. The Gulf region is a breeding ground for flamingos and pelicans.

The large carnivores tiger, leopard, brown bear, wolf, golden jackal and striped hyena live in Iran; smaller predators are red fox, badger, honey badger, otter, stone marten and pine marten. The cloven-hoofed fauna includes fallow deer, red deer and roe deer; other wild mammals are bezoar goats and white tailed porcupines. In the Caspian Sea, the sturgeons , which have been severely declined due to overfishing, live. Nature reserves take up around 7% of the country’s area.
