  • The most recent tectonic deformation of the Zagros, and in particular the late Quaternary right-lateral wrench movement along the Main Recent Fault, is summarized in the context of the general tectonic history of the range. The seismicity along the Main Recent Fault between latitudes 33 and 35° N is examined, and details are given for several destructive earthquakes, including the 1909 Selakhor earthquake which was associated with over 40 km of surface faulting along a segment of the Main… CONTINUE READING
