This paper aims to investigate the geomorphological characteristics of the eastern coast of the Dead Sea as influenced by structural instability and climatic changes. Aerial photos and map analyses served to distinguish main morphological features and slope classes, whereas geomorphological changes along the coast, mainly those developed by the declining of the Dead Sea levels were located and examined in the field. Also attention was paid to dimensions and development of particular features, including deltaic fans, terraces, channel behavior, and other forms of sediment accumulation
