Offsets along the Doruneh fault; implications for dating sampling sites and slip rate determination

Abstract

The Doruneh fault is one of the longest and most prominent faults in Iran. However, only two recorded historical earthquakes with magnitudes more than 7 might be related to this fault. For getting more information on this fault more investigation in different fields are required. Fault displacement is one of the most important parameters needed to explore the fault activity. In this study, with the help of Landsat and Quickberd images of this region, several locations near Bardaskan, Khalil-Abad, Kashmar and Rezg-Abad are suggested for field measurement and OSL sampling to improve the information on this fault.
