The present study investigates relation between coastal zons with urban human structures in sea states. Urban human structures are urban populations, coastal cities, world cities and coastal capitals. This research is basic in terms of its objective and is descriptive-analytic in terms of nature and method. This paper uses qualitative and quantitative analysis to explain the relationship between the two variables of coastal zons and urban human structures. The ratio of low elevation coastal zone (less than 10 meters from the coast) to the total surface area of the country is an explanatory indicator of coastal topography, and the ratio of the population living in the coastal zone to the total population of the country is an explanatory indicator of the coastal population. The findings of the research indicate that the coastal area is one of the factors in the development of urban human resources. Regression analysis shows that the correlation coefficient of coastal zone topography with the distribution of population equals with 0.812 (P Value 0.000<0.05). The results show that there is a significant relationship between topography of the coastal zone and the distribution of population, to the extent that for every one-unit increase in topography of the coastal region, the distribution of human populations index size increases by 0.833 (constant 0.070). Besides, the opportunities and threats of population settlement in coastal zone are analyzed in the following section of the article.
