Aseismic deformation of a fold-and-thrust belt imaged by synthetic aperture radar interferometry near Shahdad, southeast Iran

Abstract:

At depth, many fold-and-thrust belts are composed of a gently dipping, basal thrust fault and steeply dipping, shallower splay faults that terminate beneath folds at the surface. Movement on these buried faults is difficult to observe, but synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry has imaged slip on at least 600 km2 of the Shahdad basal-thrust and splay-fault network in southeast Iran. Approximately 70 mm of thrust motion on the 8°-dipping Shahdad basal thrust occurred 8-30 km to the east...
