Late Cenozoic reorganization of the Arabia-Eurasia collision and the comparison of short-term and long-term deformation rates

Abstract:

The Arabia-Eurasia collision deforms an area of ∼3,000,000 km2 of continental crust, making it one of the largest regions of convergent deformation on Earth. There are now estimates for the active slip rates, total convergence and timing of collision-related deformation of regions from western Turkey to eastern Iran. This paper shows that extrapolating the present day slip rates of many active fault systems for ∼3-7 million years accounts for their total displacement. This result means that t...
