Abstract
Abu Zneima area (600 km2) is a structural headland of Gulf of Suez, some 150 km south east of Suez. The study area comprises variegated limestone rock formations and a complex structure of rift system. Most of Abu Zneima area is dissected by old fluvial networks and influenced by folding and faulting-associated landforms.  Few locals contain current geomorphic process and landforms under the hegemony of hyper arid climate. The aim of this paper is to analyze the geomorphic characteristics of fluvial and structural effects on the development of the study area. Various techniques of data collection and interpretation have been followed, especially field survey, GPS data collection, digital cartography and remote sensing methods
