  • TITLE: Tectonic Geomorphology of Iran’s Salt Structures

    AUTHORS: Mehran Arian, Hamideh Noroozpour

    KEYWORDS: Tectonic Geomorphology, Salt Structures, Diapir, Iran, Halokinesis

    ABSTRACT: Iran has a various salt structures that their tectonic geomorphology is subject of this paper. Geologic situation of salt structures in Iran have determinate. According to age and geological setting of salt deposits that revealed by tectonic geomorphology methods, salt structure provinces of the Central and Southern Iran have been distinguished. Also, critical concepts of salt diapirism in the Southern Iran and Central Iran salt basins have explained. Therefore, Central Iran’s salt diapirs have triggered by tectonic forces, but salt diapirism in the Southern Iran has triggered by halokinesis, then it has effected by tectonic forces, especially in Zagros fold and thrust belt.
