Analysis of the tectonic activity of the Meghan watershed basin through geomorphic indices
Abstract:   (676 Views)
Parts of the earth's crust during the time of the present have land-based movements and will be susceptible to danger in the future. Therefore, geomorphologic forms are highly sensitive to tectonic activities and are subject to changes in these movements.Meghan is one of the central basins of the country in the northeast of Markazi province. The existence of two main tabarte-tealkhab systems with the southeast-northwest process and multiple sub-faults indicates the emergence of significant tectonic phenomena in the area. . The evaluation of tectonic activities, using some quantitative indicators, plays an important role in recognizing these activities and contributes to the interpretation of the tectonic condition of the areas. The purpose of this study is to investigate the state of the newly built land using geomorphological data. To achieve this goal, seven geomorphologic indices: Longitudinal slope indicators of the river, The width of the valley floor to its height, Asymmetry of drainage basin, Transverse topographic symmetry, Basin shape ratio, Basin Hypsometric Curve, River maze, As the main tools of this research has been used. The research method is based on the analytical method. he tools used in this research include topographic and geological maps of the study area, satellite image and geographic information system in the form of ARC GIS 10 software. Also, the quantitative results obtained during several stages of fieldwork were evaluated. The results of this study show that the study area based on the slope of the river, whose magnitude is (4/353), drainage basin asymmetry (6/47), transverse topographic symmetry (24/0), hypsometric curve basin, and the maze is that (21/1) are in tectonic active status and only based on the ratio of the width of the valley floor to a height equal to (24/2) and the shape of the basin (5/3) It is in semi-active state.. As a result, the BS index, which represents the shape of the basin, is higher in the taller basins, and since most of the study sub-basins are drawn, it indicates high tectonic activity.
