- ABSTRACT: One of the most
interesting salt structures is salt-tongue canopy. The Central Iran basin has a
few salt provinces and in this paper, morphotectonic concept of the salt-tongue
canopy on the west of Garmsar city has been investigated. In this study, field
data coupling with the salt tectonic-related factors to provide a position for
salt rocks in the west Garmsar. Firstly, various geological factors such as
faults, folds and roads were extracted and compiled. This is because the
factors mentioned above play important role in the instability of the region.
The results of this study showed that the salt extrusion from the Lower Red
formation is severe. Further, it is evident that the shortening of main
structures has had a great impact on it whilst the salt movements have occurred
within Garmsar Syncline. Finally, the paper concluded that the salt-tongue
canopy in the region has increased the rates of salt extrusion.
