The structure and late Quaternary slip rate of the Rafsanjan strike-slip fault, SE Iran

Abstract:

The Rafsanjan right-lateral strike-slip fault in SE Iran has a clear expression in the geomorphology, is sited close to several large population centers, and yet its role in the regional tectonics, its rate of activity, and its potential to generate destructive earthquakes are unknown. We use high- resolution satellite imagery and field investigation to identify the active strands of the fault system and show that the overall north-south rightlateral shearing across the region is spatially se...
