Abstract

Spatial Heterogeneity of Tectonic Features in the Area between the Qatar-Kazerun and the Minab Faults, the Southeast of the Zagros Fold-and-Thrust Belt, Iran

Tectonic activity in the southeast of the Zagros of Iran varies in intensity. Investigators have evaluated the tectonics using the geological and geophysical features of the region for several decades. We have analyzed many of the data geostatistically to map the two-dimensional spatial distributions of seismicity, topography and structure. We distinguished two contrasting tectonic domains:the less tectonic activities in the north-northeast than southsouthwest.

Keywords: Spatial heterogeneity; Tectonics; Seismicity; Geostatistical modeling; Zagros fold-and-thrust belt
