The Phase II study area is from Naiband Bay to Dayyer, covering an approximately 90 km stretch of the shoreline. Figure 1 shows the Landsat image of the present study area. The mountains along the Phase II shorelines are part of the Zagros Simply Folded Zone (SFZ) that consists mainly of elongate folds which arch upwards as anticlines and downwards as synclines. The resulting series of elliptical long linear ridges and valleys present an impressive landscape for their symmetry, extent and quality of exposure.
