This method is derived from Ohio Rapid Assessment Method (ORAM) by some changes in some indexes and eliminating some sub-indexes. These changes are regard to the characteristics of the region Caspian Sea southern coasts wetlands. Then wetland assessment has been done by CRAM for these 3 wetlands. The results show the points, 60 for Anzali, 47 for Boojagh and 56 for Miyankaleh, and all the wetlands are level 2. Level 2 wetlands are destroyed but recoverable.
