Abstract

In terms of their regional tectonic setting, SE Turkey and NE Syria belong to the Persian Gulf basin, and the essential structural features of SW Iran and N Iraq are readily discernible here. Large, elongated folds of Alpine (Mio-Pliocene) age dominate the structure of the region, and the intensity of deformation increases towards the north, in the direction of the Taurus orogenic zone.
