Abstract [en]

The studied area is located in the Western part of Zagros Fold and Thrust Belt, northeastern part of Iraq, along the border between Iraq and Iran. It covers an area of about 1600 Km2. It is rugged area, the relief difference ranges from 2526 to 440 m. The high terrain is mainly of structural origin, which is represented by Avroman Range and Qulqula Imbricate structure. The studied area includes twelve geological units of sedimentary rocks, which are ranging in age from Triassic to Late Cretaceous, besides different types of Quaternary sediments. The work, which performed in the area, was field work, which carried out to identify the structural characteristics, via get structural data of the major and minor structures in the area. The field work performed during two periods (Summer-2016 and spring-2017). Performed six geological traverses and studied the structural elements of forty one minor folds during the field work in additional to other minor structures. The goals are build 3D-model for study area using Move and Arc GIS softwares. Moreover, to obtained better understanding of the tectonic history and how many tectonic phases effected the area and explain the relationship between the major and minor structures in the area. The studied area contains a numbers of minor structures that come in different forms, sizes and directions, which indicate their effect in many tectonic phases. Furthermore all most all the structures in the studied area are related with thrusting, which due to the collision between Arabian and Iranian Plates since Miocene till now.
