Abstract: Globally, water recourses are scarce in semi-arid to arid environments, specifically the Middle East. In order to provide civilizations with access to water, the construction of a qanat system has been critiqued. The location of most qanat success has been located in Kerman, Iran. In order to understand the history and progress of qanat technology in Kerman, Iranian geology, hydrology and climate were analyzed.
