... of the Hormuz and the Namakdan diapirs were much faster than the uplift rate of 0.2 mm y −1 for the Persian Gulf coast over the last 250 ka (Reyss et al . 1998 ). The rim of Hormuz Island rose at 2 mm y −1 over the last 10 4 years while the highest part of the terrace was uplifted at 5–6 mm y −1 (Bruthans...

Some salt bodies are very shallow and lie about 300 m below the seabed ( Fig. 6 ), whereas others occur deeper, with a minimum depth of about 450 m below seabed ( Fig. 7...

In these rift basins there accumulated thick sequences of clastic and carbonate rocks and salt, such as the Ara Group in Oman, Salt Range Formation in Pakistan, and Hormuz Series in the Arabian Gulf and Zagros Mountains. During the extensional collapse, the N-trending anticlines probably remained elevated...

Our numerical models not only shed new light on the SI dynamics of Cenozoic subduction zones (e.g., the Izu-Bonin-Mariana zone in the Pacific Ocean), but also have implications for fossil convergent plate margins (e.g., the Bitlis-Zagros suture zone, west of the Strait of Hormuz). In the latter case...
