Over the past few decades, about 70% of the world’s shores have been affected by continuous coastal erosion. In this regard, the International Committee of Geography considers coastal areas to be one of the most unique natural areas [1]. This territory is considered to be the intersection of the morphological processes of the sea with land [2]. Ecologically, coastal areas have very importance and importance due to the presence of sensitive ecosystems [3]. Because of numerous human uses, coastal always appear as an area of traction and contradiction [4]. The global average sea level has increased by the 20th century, and it is expected that in the current century, due to glacial melt and thermal expansion, the surface water will increase [5-7], which poses a serious threat to the stability of the coastal ecosystem and property peoples [8,9]. It is vital to monitor the coastline dynamics in order to cope with these problems, because this monitoring provides essential information for understanding the response of coastal changes to the present climate change and human impacts [10].
