Structural analysis of surface and subsurface data in the Dezful Embayment, the northern Fars, and the High Zagros provinces shows that the presence of the Eocambrian Hormuz and the Miocene Gasharan salt layers have a direct control on the structural style. Both are levels of major disharmony and decollement during the Neogene Zagros folding.

There is some evidence that Hormuz salt doming started before the Neogene Zagros orogeny. Permo-Triassic Tethysian rifting along High Zagros northwest-southeast trends and Cretaceous-Paleogene obduction and compressive events associated with basement reactivation of north-south Arabian trends could have initiated some episodic salt diapir activity in...
