     After Persian Gulf and putting on fine the oil wells of kuwait, crude oil been spread on persian Gulf waters and also the smoke extracted by firing resulted a destructive effect on zagros geology and environment Falling acidic rains has caused contamination of rivers and underground water surfaces and erosion of region’s stones had significant changes and reformations. In order to.assign the limits rate of this losses , has been benefited from geographical data system , as well as information layers and of plants accumulation , rain load , sediments rates, carried by rivers and satellite images , etc
