The Zagros fold-thrust belt (ZFTB) extends from Turkey to the Hormuz Strait, as a result of the collision of the Arabian and Eurasian plates in the course of Cenozoic occasions, and separates the Arabian platform from the massive plateaux of relevant Iran. To the east a suggested syntaxis marks the transition among the Zagros collision belt and the Makran accretionary wedge. within the ZFTB, the Proterozoic to contemporary stratigraphic succession pile is desirous about large folds, and gives the chance to check the stratigraphic and tectonic evolution of the Palaeo-Tethyan margin. Few contemporary facts have been generally to be had at the southern Tethys margin preserved within the Zagros Mountains. the center East Basins Evolution (MEBE) application used to be an exceptional chance to return to the sphere and to assemble new information to raised constrain the evolution of this margin. during this quantity the constitution of the Zagros Mountains is explored via varied scales and utilizing various methodologies. The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on the planet, and one of many biggest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of fine quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign popularity for the standard of its work.The many components during which we post in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reports and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications

The presence of Hormuz Salt limited to the east of the Kazerun Fault may facilitate the diffusion of deformation above a ductile ZAGROS KINEMATICS layer and thus the slip motion. However, the existence of the Hormuz Salt cannot explain on its own the distribution of motion, because some of these faults (Kareh-Bas, Sabz-Pushan) are also seismically very active. Furthermore, our GPS results do not support a ‘spreading’ pattern of deformation for the Kazerun Fault System similar to gravity spreading as claimed by Nilforoushan & Koyi (2007) on the basis of analogue experiments.
