In this paper has been studied the capability of Lut desert as a world Geopark based on geo-heritages sites. Lut Desert with area of 100,000 km2 approximately is hottest point in the world and 25th world largest desert. To investigate Geopark capability of Lut desert, we applied a quantitative approach based on geoheritage features inference score. In the first was identified the main geomorphology landforms in the Lut desert considering Hydro-Aeolian landforms regarding Mega Yardangs and Kalut, Aeolian features involving desert pavement stones (Hamada), Nebkha, and sand sea (Erg) with highest sand dunes in the world. In other hand was determined the main geomorphic forms in the Playa of lut with huge salty-clay pan areas. To assess capability of these geoheritages for introducing Lut desert as a world geopark, an approach was developed based on utility theory and matrix decision framework. A representative value function was inferred to explain the relative importance of the geoheritages features. The results of this research indicated that Lut desert can be considered as a world geopark to comparison desert evolution and landform chronology in relation to geomorphology events, anthropology and civilization development in similar areas in the world.
