Morphotectonic Evidences for Strike-Slip Component of the Reverse Fault at the Southeastern Plunge of Bashiqa Anticline
Iraqi National Journal of Earth Science,
2020, Volume 20, Issue 1, Pages 15-23
AbstractSedimentary rock beds and drainage pattern offset took place predominantly at the southeastern plunge of Bashiqa anticline which indicates shear zone in this area represented by apparent left-lateral fault separation of reverse fault dipping to the southeast. This study will discuss and update the geological information of the impressions of the fault on the surface topography based on the morphotectonic evidences including visual interpretation of the satellite image for the landforms and regional stress analysis of the study area. The variations of landform features are regarded as an efficient geological indicator for tectonic activity in the area.
