     Studying the morpho resulted from tectonic process or applying morphotectonic principles in earth study is called morphotectonics. Since some low parameters of tectonics are showing tectonic activities, so some of them were analyzed. I3ehhehan area has important historical and instrumental seismic activities. The area is a part of Zagros zone, which is considered as an active area from tectonic viewpoint. So, the area is studied by morphotectonic quantity parameters and is divided according to more and less tectonic activity. Moreover, the important faults of the area is segmented and the activity of them were determined for future. Meanwhile, the most important transform faults, which are available in north of Behbehan were analyzed by stream sinuosity parameters.
