We investigated the sequence stratigraphic architecture of Neogene deposits in the Zagros region using 12 measured stratigraphic sections and performing strontium isotope measurements on 10 samples. We combined our data with 44 previous published Sr isotope measurements and five paleomagnetostratigraphic sections in order to place the foreland deposits in a chronostratigraphic framework. Two chronostratigraphic charts were created, and transgressive-regressive system tracts were identified in the western and eastern sectors of the Zagros. These results show that the southward migration of the Zagros fold-and-thrust belt led to broadly upward-coarsening, progradational sequences due to progressive uplift and seaward (south-westward) migration of...
