Structural-kinematic identification of seismogenic zones of the Zagrosa system (according to the data of solving the mechanisms of earthquakes foci)

© Volfman Yu.M.

On the base of results of analysis of structural-kinematic parageneses of ruptures and displacements in the earthquakes foci of the folded-faulted Zagrosa system the main types of seismogenesis have been substantiated and their stereographic models plotted characterizing deformation regimes and kinematic conditions of seismogenic rupturing in the region. Special features revealed for spatial distribution of the different types foci, approximated by these models, served as the basis for structural-kinematic identification of seismogenic zones which formation was determined by peculiarities of structure and geodynamic development of the territory under investigation.
