[1] An Mw 6.5 earthquake devastated the town of Bam in southeast Iran on 26 December 2003. Surface displacements and decorrelation effects, mapped using Envisat radar data, reveal that over 2 m of slip occurred at depth on a fault that had not previously been identified. It is common for earthquakes to occur on blind faults which, despite their name,(More)

[1] The 856 A.D. Qumis earthquake (M7.9) is the most destructive earthquake to have occurred in Iran, killing more than 200,000 people and destroying the cities of Damghan and the old Parthian capital of Shahr‐i Qumis (Hecatompylos). This study combines evidence of historical seismicity with observations of the geomorphology and paleoseismology to provide(More)

39 Although sliced by several strike slip faults, a large part of Central Iran remained 40 aseismic during the period of time covered by the instrumental and historical seismic records. 41 Stating the existence of earthquakes in the Holocene is therefore important for the assessment 42 of the regional seismic hazard. A paleoseismic study of the Deshir fault(More)
