AbstractSlopes are a phenomenon of a dynamic active nature in all geographical environments and locations, yet this phenomenon varies in its extent according to the factors which affect it. The significance of this study lies in the fact that it is the core of geomorphology since the variety and difference in the land forms is related to the nature of the slopes and their morphological characteristics.
The area of the study (Akre mountain) , which is 286,873 kms, is identified by Gali Zanta, Peris mountain and Nahla plain to the north , khazr river to the west , Cantor line (600) to the south which represents the northern part of Akre plain . This area which belongs to Akre district is identified by the administrative border of Al_markas district and is part of Dinarta district to the north. From an astronomical point of view , The area is identified by the two latitudes(36 41 17) ) and (36 51 12) to the north and the two longitudes (43 37 27 ) and (43 58 39) to the east.
Many theories, which tried hard to arrive at a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of the development of slopes, have appeared in addition to some classifications. The most important and well-known classification among scholars which is also based on in this study is Zink classification. This classification has led to designing general and specialized maps for the sloping grades and identifying the dangerous areas suffering from the problem of mass movement the most important of which are Gali Zanta and the ancient town of Akre. This classification has put forward suitable solutions to deal with every location according to the sloping grades. Moreover, it has shown that there are different forms of slopes which can be invested and developed in the tourist aspects, for instance.
