Investigation and analysis of active geomorphological and tectonic evidence using geomorphological indicators in the northern slopes of Jiroft Plain

Abstract:   (537 Views)
The study and measurement of landscapes and forms created by active tectonics are considered important issues of geomorphology. Active tectonic movements of a region are recorded in the morphology of rivers, drainage of waterways, alluvial cones and mountain fronts. Jabal Barez fault is located in the north of Jiroft plain in the south of Kerman province, which is active from a tectonic point of view. Due to the operation of the Jabalbarz fault in the region, a specific morphology has been created in the northern slopes of Jiroft Plain, which can be used to identify different parts of this fault. Geomorphological indicators are a useful tool in the evaluation of new tectonic activities in regions. The important advantage of these indicators is the high speed in analyzing and determining the level of new land construction activity. The main goal of this research is to investigate the active tectonic activity of Jabalbarez fault using morphotectonic indicators (SL, S, Smf, Facet%, VF). The results obtained from the morphotectonic indicators indicate the continuation of neo-tectonic movements and uplift in the study area, which are consistent with the geomorphological evidence in the study area, such as the presence of linear and straight fault cliffs, triangular shapes, deep and V-shaped valleys.
 
Keywords: active tectonics, morphotectonic index, Jabal Barez, Jiraft.
