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

     Information about 123 earthquakes which has occurred between the years 1/1/1925 till 30/12/1999 in 29-30 degrees north longitude and 51 .30 to 52.30 degrees east latitude area, indicates the seismically and seismotectonicly active zones. In this study the avtive areas arc rexament and the “a” and “h” values of’ the region were studied and the return period of the earthquakes fbr the pcriod of 35 years and the probability of the occurrence of an earthquake with specific magnitude lir the structures with the specific useful life time of 25, 50, 75 & 100 years were calculatcd.This assessment very high seismic activities of the region.
