COVER: A positive flower architecture propagated in Pliocene-Quaternary sandstone and microconglomerate deposits at northwest Bardeskan, Khorasan province, Iran. Kinematics indicators such as slicken-lines, synthetic Rieldel fractures, and steps on the fault surface indicate a pure right-lateral strike-slip sense of shear along the sub-vertical NW-SE striking positive flower structure. These sub-vertical NW-SE striking right-lateral fault sets associated with the sub-vertical NE-SW striking left-lateral fault sets, in the form of conjugate faults, are formed in response to the N-S maximum shortening direction at the north Doruneh fault zone. Latitude/Longitude: 35°29′20.07″/57°43′26.43″.
