Late Cenozoic volcanism and rates of active faulting in eastern Iran

Abstract:

We present new 40 Ar/39 Ar ages of samples of volcanic rock exposed along the remote margins of the Dasht-e Lut desert in eastern Iran. Close spatial relationships between the volcanic rocks and the trace of active strike-slip faults allow us to determine the slip rates of two major faults, averaged since eruption of the volcanics. Our study shows that the Nayband fault at the western margin of the Dasht-e Lut has a slip rate of ∼1.4 ± 0.5 mm yr-1 averaged over 2.25 Ma. The East Neh fault, on...
