Extrusion tectonics and subduction in the Eastern South Caspian region since 10 Ma

Abstract:

We examine active deformation of the region surrounding the eastern South Caspian Sea using a combination of seismic, geological, geodetic, and geomorphological data. Global positioning system (GPS) velocities indicate a westward component of motion of the South Caspian basin, relative to Eurasia and central Iran. We identify major zones of shear (the Ashkabad and Shahrud fault zones) that accommodate this westward extrusion on either side of the South Caspian block. Estimates of total strike...
