Slip-rate estimate and past earthquakes on the Doruneh fault, eastern Iran

Abstract:

The Doruneh fault, with a length of ∼600 km, is one of the longest, and most prominent, faults in Iran. It performs an important role in the regional tectonics, but has no record of large earthquakes. The geomorphology of the Doruneh fault contains numerous indications of cumulative left-lateral slip over various scales. We describe three sites where Late Quaternary landforms are displaced by the fault. (a) An incised alluvial fan near the village of Uch Palang is displaced by 800-850 m. (b) ...
