Morphotectonical & Neotectonical situation of Nojian basin (SE of Khoramabad)

Category Tectonic & Seismotectonic
Group GSI.IR
Location 21th symposium on geosciences
Holding Date 24 May 2008

      The area under discussion is located 30km away in the southeast of Khoramabad .In Geological aprroach, it lies in folded Zagros zone. Oldest stratigraphic unite is Bangestan limeston and morphology of earth surface is the result of erosion , and tectonic processes which rolling upon the region . Studied area is constitute of folds , faults and joints and morphotectonic and neotectonic phenomenae are most common forming the young fault scarpments, landslides , river. Captures , forming young tectonic valleys , river terraces and activity of faults are reason of this research.
