Turkey: Arabian Platform
Country Study > Chapter 2 > The Society and Its Environment > Geography > Landform Regions > Arabian Platform

ARABIAN PLATFORM


The Arabian Platform is in southeast Anatolia south of the Anti-Taurus Mountains. It is a region of rolling hills and a broad plateau surface that extends into Syria. Elevations decrease gradually, from about 800 meters in the north to about 500 meters in the south. Traditionally, wheat and barley were the main crops of the region, but the inauguration of major new irrigation projects in the 1980s has led to greater agricultural diversity and development.
