Abstract

Many geoscientists are carrying out a lot of works on tectonic geomorphology, either with traditional or with new techniques using remote sensing and GIS. Amongst the significant contributions are Berberian M. (1973), Barzangi M. (1986), Keller E. A. (1986), Graps R. et al (1988), Birkeland P. W. (1990), Edmond J.M. (1992), Berberian M. (1995), Barzangi M. (1996), Small E.E and Anderson R.A. (1998), Ali S.A. (1988, 2000, 2001), Burbank D.W. (2001), Jana M.M. (2002), Ali S.A. et al (2003). During the past decade, the increasingly wide spread application of new techniques such as Global Positioning System (GPS), remote sensing and GIS have yielded spectacular new images of current earth motion. Hence, morphotectonically deformed surfaces that represent planner and linear features can subsequently be marked out. In this chapter Zagros Mountains south west Iran are focused which the tectonic processes have widely encompasses all types of deformation, including the motion of tectonic plates, slip faults, symmetrical folds and asymmetrical folds.
