Structure of the young back thrusts in termination of the Shahdad thrust fault


:Abstract


At the eastern termination of the Shahdad thrust fault in contact with the Lut block, geometry and kinematics of the synthetic and antithetic thrusts are considered. Abundant back thrusts in this locality are interpreted by a buried ramp in the lower part. These structures exist in very young deposits along the western boundary of the Lut block.
