...SOUMYAJIT MUKHERJEE; CHRISTOPHER J. TALBOT; HEMIN A. KOYI Abstract The parabolic surface profiles of the Hormuz and Namakdan salt diapirs in the Persian Gulf suggest that they have been extruding with Newtonian viscous rheologies for the last 10 4 years. We derive velocity profiles...

...M. A. Ala Abstract More than 200 piercement salt plugs are present in southern Iran and in the Persian Gulf region. Recent investigations have shown the salt, the Hormuz Series, to be largely of Precambrian (late Proterozoic) age. The diapirs are famous for their tonguelike projections, known...

...Mohammad Alsouki; Mohammad Ali Riahi; Ali Yassaghi Abstract ABSTRACT A detailed interpretation of seismic data has been carried out to analyse salt diapirism in the Straits of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf. Salt diapirs in the Zagros Foldbelt are mainly characterized by structures formed...

... province of southern Iran can only be modeled if the viscosity of the largely carbonate overburden is at least 100- and probably 1,000-fold greater than that of the Hormuz salt forming the Zagros diapirs. In contrast to the important effects of viscosity and of total stratigraphic thickness, the number...

... riding on a sole thrust in the Hormuz evaporites: a conclusion driven by section balancing ( Alavi 2007 ), supported indirectly by abundant exposures of Hormuz salt diapirs in the region ( Bosák et al. 1998 ; Talbot 1998 ; Alsouki et al. 2011 ; Thomas et al. 2015 ).

...Abbas Bahroudi; HeminA. Koyi Abstract Scaled analogue models of thin-skinned simultaneous shortening above adjacent viscous and frictional décollements simulate the effect of Hormuz salt on the shortening in the Zagros fold and thrust belt. The models consisted of sand layers that partly overlay...

... Formation may have a salt layer at its base. From sub-surface data, we deduce that this evaporitic sequence could be up to two thousand meters thick in some areas. The mechanisms of diapirism in the Hormuz series have been a subject of interest for many years in the Iranian Zagros ( Harrison, 1930...

... in a 20 to 30 km-wide zone), reactive some of the preshortening diapirs, and generate new synshortening listric diapirs. A third set of postshortening diapirs rises from the Hormuz decollement behind the fold-thrust front. Model buckle folds superimposed on diapirs or pillows tend to avoid and curve...

... in the Hormuz basin, we expect the early set of structures to have evolved rapidly to the set of cylindrical diapirs which are now observed. These experiments demonstrate the importance of salt structures at a local scale in controlling the deformation pattern and fold geometry. The first-order...

... interpretation. In addition, the 3D model is the only tool that allows drawing consistent cross-sections in areas where there are no seismic lines. Emerging Hormuz salt diapirs were added to the model. Dimensions and shapes of the individual diapirs were modelled using a statistical survey on the cropping out...

...A. S. Alsharhan; M. G. Salah Abstract The offshore of the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) contains eight diapiric islands; Dalma, Zirkouh, Qarnain, Das, Sir Bani Yas, Arzana, Sir Abu Nuwair and Abu Musa. These islands and Jebel Dhanna Peninsula owe their relief to the diapiric movement of salt which...

.... Sample experiments of diapirism with and without lateral deformation are compared to natural equivalents. The spacing of post-Late Triassic diapirs in the Zechstein salt of Germany and of post-Jurassic diapirs in the Hormuz salt of Arabia yields circles on Fry plots which indicate that these gravity...

... indicate that thickness variations in strata surrounding domes were caused by syndepositional processes rather than by tectonic distortion. Salt domes in the East Texas basin exhibit three stages of growth: pillow, diapir, and post-diapir, each of which affected surrounding strata differently. Pillow...

However, little systematic investigation has been...

Additionally, salt diapirs influence the temperature fields of sedimentary basins, affecting the maturity of organic matter and hydrocarbon generation ( Dronkert & Remmelts 1996 ). Moreover, the Zechstein salt deposits are a commercial resource...

... the margin of the diapir province, apparently in pre-Aptian depocenters. Maximum dome growth along the basin axis coincided with maximum regional sedimentation there during the middle Cretaceous (Aptian, Albian, and Cenomanian). In the Late Cretaceous the sites of maximum diapirism migrated to the periphery...
