Holocene slip-rate on the Gowk strike-slip fault and implications for the distribution of tectonic strain in eastern Iran

Abstract:

We provide the first quantitative estimate of the Holocene slip-rate on the Gowk strike-slip fault in eastern Iran. The main active strand of the fault cuts lakebed sediments within the South Golbaf pull-apart basin. Numerous channels incised into the palaeolake surface are displaced right-laterally by 30 ± 5 m at the fault. Radiocarbon dating of two terrestrial wood fragments constrains the lake desiccation at a maximum of 7.9 ± 0.1 cal ka BP, from which we estimate a minimum slip-rate for t...
