5 Themes Project- Southwest and Central Asia By Vionna Atefi, G block Region Movement Iran Location Iran in in Southwest Asia. It's in the middle east, bordering the Gulf of Oman and The Persian Gulf (Which is named after the famous empire that ruled most of the known world at the time.) Iran also borders the Caspian Sea. It's in between Iraq and Pakistan and Afghanistan. The coordinates on the global grid that indicate Iran are 32 00 N, 53 00 E. The capital of Iran is Tehran with is a busy advanced city. Iran is located in a few regions of the world. A region is classified by a group of area that share a characteristic. One region that Iran is included in in the Muslim World or more specifically, the Shiite Muslim World. Geographically Iran is located in Southwest Asia and the Middle East. Some other countries speak the same language that Iranian citizens speak: Persian. And that lets Iran be in another region based on similar ways of verbal communication. People, Goods and Ideas are constantly moving from destination to destination and there have to be ways for things to get where they need to go. One thing that travels are people. People travel by air, helicopters, road and train in Iran. Even though people are constantly moving to places in Iran there is a net migration rate of -0.11 migrants. This means people are leaving. Besides people goods are moving. These goods travel by Airplanes, Helicopters, Train, Cars, Ports, Terminals and Merchant Marine. These goods are moving in and out of Iran. Imports include:
*Industrial Supplies
*Capital Goods
*Food Stuffs
*Consumer Goods
Iran is also exporting stuff for other locations to enjoy:
*Chemical and Petrochemical products
*Fruits and Nuts
The last thing that moves are ideas. Iran have pretty modern technology such as telephones, TV and Internet. Things are always moving.

Iran's geographic features include a rugged mountainous rim, a central basin with deserts, and discontinuous plains along both coasts. Summer in Iran lasts from June to August and Winter lasts from December to February. There are long, hot, dry summers on the central plateau and very cold winters in the north. Meanwhile the winters in the north do not include the Caspian Sea. The vegetation is mountainous forests and deserts. If you would like to refer to a citizen of Iran you would call them Iranians like people would call us Americans. The people of Iran speak Farsi which is their official language. These people sum up to a whopping 78, 868, 711 population and 77% of them can read and write. In that 77% there are woman and men. 83.5% of the male population can read and write. 70.4% of the woman population can also read and write. Iran is a Theocratic Republic, meaning that religion is a main part of their lives. Iranian do get to vote for their leader at the age of 18 and their current president is Ahmadi Nejad. This is Ahmadi Nejad http://www.iranchamber.com/history/mahmadinejad/images/mahmoud_ahmadinejad1.jpg Question 1: What do people do to adapt to your environment? HEI A: People in Iran have done many things to adapt to their environment. They build houses in the desert that create wind tunnels so that they can withstand the extreme temperatures. This is a way for them to naturally cool themselves. Since there is a lot of areas where water is scarce the Iranians found a way to tap into underground water so they could quench their thirst despite the heat and lack of natural water. People who live in mountains have adapted to their environment by wearing baggy pants that have a tighter part at the shins. These specific pants are good for climbing. Question 2: How do people use their surroundings? A: Farming is big in Iran. In tropical climates the people use their surroundings to grow rice. In warmer climates they grow dates and pistachios. Another big natural resource they have is oil so they use the their plentiful supply of natural oil in daily life to power vehicles. Question 3: How do people negatively or positively impact their environment? A: A negative impact is that the major cities like Tehran, pollute the air with cars, factories or other machines. A positive impact is that there are wildlife preserves in Iran. Question 4: How does the environment impact the people? A: Since some areas in Iran are deserts people had to tap into water which is something they did to adapt to their environment. The environment also takes a part in the making of their shelters/homes which are sometimes made of clay.
