Iran has a various salt
structures that their tectonic geomorphology is subject of this paper. Geologic
situation of salt structures in Iran have determinate. According to age and
geological setting of salt deposits that revealed by tectonic geomorphology
methods, salt structure provinces of the Central and Southern Iran have been
distinguished. Also, critical concepts of salt diapirism in the Southern Iran
and Central Iran salt basins have explained. Therefore, Central Iran’s salt
diapirs have triggered by tectonic forces, but salt diapirism in the Southern
Iran has triggered by halokinesis, then it has effected by tectonic forces,
especially in Zagros fold and thrust belt.
