Refolding history in the northeast of Kuhbanan fault

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

   Abstract:
      Two main map-scale Bidooyeh and Hoseinabad synclines were refolded in the southeastern part of the Kuhbanan block. This block is restricted to the Kuhbanan fault in the south and Behabad-Barfab faults to the north. Structural analysis of these two main structures and others in this block indicates that refolding is restricted to the southeastern part of this block. We interpret that refolding was produced by transferring of the Kuhbanan block to the southeast and clockwise rolling process due to resistance of Lut block along the Nayband's fault.
