Introduction
My research interests are primarily focused upon land surface processes, and the impact that climate change and anthropogenic activity are having upon these processes today, and have had in the past, and may have in the future. With respect to the future I hope to investigate and be involved in the development of sustainable ecosystems, and develop programs of ongoing nature conservation using interdisciplinary studies through collaboration with others in complimentary fields of study

Abstract 1- Introduction More than two thirds of Iran located at the arid and semi arid areas. Deficit of precipitation, reduced biodiversity and low density of vegetation. Poor vegetation allows to the wind to easily erode the soils and removes surface soil, from source areas and move to other places. In wind erosion we can recognize tree zones,...

It is believed that low chemical weathering in the desert has made it suitable for preservation and concentration of meteorites. The dry and warm climate causes low chemical weathering in the Lut Desert. But the effects of salt and temperature fluctuations, however, are the main culprits for physical fragmentation and reshaping the meteorites. The...
