Investigating the tectonic activity by using geomorphic indexes in the east of Malayer

Category Tectonic & Seismotectonic
Group GSI.IR
Location 20th symposium on geosciences
Holding Date 16 April 2008

     The region in which is under investigation, is located in the northern part of sanandaj- sirjan structural zone (Hamadan- urmieh zone ).It’s general trend is NW-SE. Mountain fronts of the region in different directions show various tectonic activity. Considering topography and morphlogy of earth surface is the result of erosion,and tectonic processes which ruling upon the region,so,with comparing geomorphic indices the situation of region take into consider active tectonics, and the situation of relative tectonic activity of different stations compared with each other after putting to gether results.
