Abstract: Aster satellite imageries of the Sirik Headland from the year 2005 were preprocessed using Envi software. Poligonized areas derived from the software were labeled and categorized afterwards, using ArcGis. On this basis, the whole area was divided into nine different categories. According to shepard classification about 70% of the area was primary coasts, mainly alluvium quaternary, and the rest secondary coasts, mainly Sabkha. According to Cowardin method however, the main area of alluvium is considered out from the classification. In this classification 27% of the area is considered as Marine system and 3% as Estuarine system.
