Abstract: 
Considerable damages are annually reported due to the slope instabilities across the country. Many factors directly affect or trigger the instabilities in which include lithology, geological structures, slope angle, drainage pattern, and elevation. The potential of slope stability in Kangan Anticline is considered in this paper. The Anticline is located in Bushehr Province where many gas producing wells are located. Slope instability hazard zonation in the middle part of the Kangan anticline is evaluated according to the Anbalagan Method. Many causative factors including lithology, slope degree, geological structures, elevation, hydrogeology, land-use and land-cover are considered in this analysis. The area is classified with regard to slope instabilities, into the four zones, namely "low hazard", "medium hazard", "high hazard" and "very high hazard". Most dominant types of hazard are identified as medium and high potential with surface coverage of 42% and 49% respectively. The very high and low potential hazard only covers 6.5% and 2.5% of the studied area. The Pabdeh and Gurpi Formations and also Quaternary deposits are identified as very high hazard zones with surface coverage of 47%.
