Analyse de la tectonique récente et active dans l'Alborz Central et la région de Téhéran :
« Approche morphotectonique et paléoseismologique »

Abstract : This thesis aims to analyze the active tectonics and its structural heritage in the Central Alborz
- active mountain range in northern of Iran lining the South-Caspian basin - and to characterize the
seismic hazard in the area of Teheran, a fifteen million inhabitant metropolis, located on the southern
frontal thrust of the range. The methods that have been used are those of the morphotectonics and
the paleosismology (satellite images, aerial pictures, Digital Elevation Models, geomorphology,
geology of Quaternary, trenching). At first, a review of the geological and structural setting is drawn up.
The based on the analysis of the structures and their reactivation through the time, we propose a new
synthesis of Alborz paleogeography put in perspective of the convergence between Arabia and
Eurasia. The analysis of active faults kinematics, particularly in the internal domain of Central Alborz,
allows proposing a new geodynamic model of northern Iran – southern Caspian region. A first
assessment of the seismic hazard (faults,slip rates, magnitude and mean recurrence interval) is drawn
up for the area of Tehran.
