With a revolution in different sciences, especially during the last decades of 20th century, the range of quantitative coastal geomorphologic studies has exceeded the descriptive and theoretical debates. These studies have a critical contribution in designing structures and establishments related to sea, handling and protecting the coasts, managing and engineering and planning of coastlines. Kangan harbor is one of the littoral towns in Boushehr province located in southern Iran near the Persian Gulf. This harbor is an economic fishing quay throughout the country of Iran where several varieties of edible and commercial fish are caught. Therefore, a survey on the geomorphology of the coasts of this region and its transformations in the course of time has a significant importance in the future development of this region. In this study, in order to investigate coastal geomorphology of Kangan harbor, IRS LISS IV satellite images with a resolution of 5.8 m in Envi4.8 software were used and the accuracy of these data were reviewed with field studies. Units of geomorphology of coastal sand dunes, estuaries, high and low tidal flats, sabkha and Mangrove forests were identified in this harbor.
