2004, Volume 4, Issue 1, Pages 1-7
AbstractThree large landslides have developed along the northern limb of Sa`hak dome, within Mkhool Range, which extends parallel to the Tigris River. The slided masses belong to the uppermost part of the Ft`ha Formation, which consists of cyclic deposits of marl, limestone and gypsum. Three stages of sliding occurred, they are few hudred years old, associated with few recent movements. Large block movements could be expected within the main moved masses and/or in the adjacent areas.
