Iran has a various saltstructures that their tectonic geomorphology is subject of this paper. Geologicsituation of salt structures in Iran have determinate. According to age andgeological setting of salt deposits that revealed by tectonic geomorphologymethods, salt structure provinces of the Central and Southern Iran have beendistinguished. Also, critical concepts of salt diapirism in the Southern Iranand Central Iran salt basins have explained. Therefore, Central Iran’s saltdiapirs have triggered by tectonic forces, but salt diapirism in the SouthernIran has triggered by halokinesis, then it has effected by tectonic forces,especially in Zagros fold and thrust belt.
