Review and Analysis of Geological Structural Model by Using Geomagnetic, Case Study: Haji Abad Region in Iran’s Zagros Zone


The use of geomagnetic for geophysical and geological studies is a new method for receiving different information from new and old faults and lineaments. Accordingly, the present study is applied research and it use combined the two methods, analytical signal and Euler’s combined method and invented a new combined method to estimate the depth, location and shape of the magnetic and gravity sources. As a case, this research selected Iran’s Zagros zone. This region due to the geological dynamics is considered by many geologists. In this regard, the 1:250,000 framework of Haji Abad was selected as a case study because of its convenient location for structural analysis. As a result, with airborne magnetic images survey, and applying filters in the vertical derivative and analytical signal, lineaments in depth of this region discovered and investigated.
