Inversion Structures

Lurestan Region, Zagros

200 m wide exposure of deep water Early Jurassic radiolarites in the Lurestan region, Zagros. The exposure is characterised by abundant extensional faults, many of which display a syn-sedimentary character. Neogene shortening has caused the development of kink folds and the reactivation of inherited extensional faults, mostly in the form of buttressing.
