     Khawr, which is an Arabic term, is used to describe all types of coastal inlets such as lagoons, tidal inlets and embayments. Such Khawrs are common along the Omani coastline.  Khawr Al-Batah, which is located in Sur is an embayment of a tidal inlet type.  It served as a natural harbor for the traditional trade vessels (dhows) in the past and for fishing boats in the present.  The objective of this paper is to study the morphological features and coastal deposition problem in Khawr Al-Batah.  In order to achieve this objective, the researcher analyzed panchromatic aerial photographs at a scale of 1:20,000 (1991), 1:25,000 (1979), the geological map of Sur Area scale 1:100,000 and the topographic maps of Sur along with field observations, measurements and sediment analysis.
