Seismic Zonation of Yazd Province
Abstract:   (3712 Views)
(Paper pages 209-226)
Yazd Province and its surrounding area between central Iran Block and the edge of Central Kavir (desert) is the study area. Considering the Polarization of wave from earthquake and defining the Fault plaine solution , the significant effects of stress on the area are as:
1) Campressive with strike slip component (right lateral)
2) Strike Slip (right lateral) with Compressive Component)
3) Compressive
4) Strike Slip with extensive Component faults with activating potential in This region are Kuhbanan , Bahabad, Rafsanjan ,Anar, north of Yazd, and Dehshir- Baft faults.
Generally This region is calm seismically. Cocerning statistics srudies of occurred earthquakes and analytic studies based on concentration and activity of faults in This area, five separated Zones including very high risk, high risk, low risk, and very low risk Zones are identified. East and southern Part of the region have higher scismic potential .
Keywords: Bahabad, Rafsanjan, Anar
