Iranian Plateau between
the Lesser Caucasus-Alborz Mountains on the north and Zagros-Makran Ranges on
the south has several inter-mountainous depressions which were filled by
Quaternary deposits. Geologic evidence implied that, the last marine conditions
in some depressions such as the Dasht-e Kavir, Dasht-e Lut and Jazmourian
basins, had been changed to land conditions in middle Miocene. Based on shape
and elevation of the Dasht-e Kavir, Dasht-e Lut and Jazmourian plains related
to sea level and geomorphology of Iranian plateau, three semi-connective
artificial lakes can be constructed upon the mentioned plains by consideration
of many geologic and geotechnical parameters. These artificial lakes can feed
by pumping of water from Oman Sea and form a triple artificial bay which they
must be connected together by two gated straits. Therefore, a possible
morphotectonic idea with many advantages has suggested that it can be present
as an international geotechnologic design. This design has the important
environmental impacts which can be changed desert to lake sedimentary basins.
