Study of Varamin plains Block Movements by Using of Morphotectonic & Neotectonic Evidences

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

      The fans may give us a lot of useful information about neotectonic and also make evaluation seismic area. There are a lot of elements for investigation on the basis of specific properties of fans. The existence or even sometimes not existence of fans could be a factor of activity in one area in the quaternary period.
   When there are some fans in the area numerous different including: differentiated thickness of deposits, activities, vertical changing of deposits thickness, longitudinal deep, the amount of improvement in to the mountains, location of major stream, the specification of surface valley, internal structure, development periods, radius section, the existence of folding and faulting, may be related to the neotectonic and we could get a lot of valuable information from investigation about these factors.
   Due to studies of tectonic and neotectonic and morphotectonic, in the fans of Varamin plain and correlation of these data with the other data of hydrology and geophysics, we can understand that basement of this area is active and we could see this activities especially in the north part of this area.
