SEISMOTECTONIC AND CALCULATION THE RETURN PERIOD IN HORMOZGAN PROVINCE, SOUTHERN IRANM. Kavei, S.D. Gore and N.J. Pawar
Over 912 earthquakes that occurred in Hormozgan between 1930 and 2005 have been recorded. These events belong to many active faults and seismically active tectonic zones in this province. The Zagros thrust fault, the Minab fault, Sho fault, Moran fault, Khamir fault, Bostaneh fault, Srakhon fault and Khosh fault are seismically active. This complex situation has resulted in a series of earthquakes which have had severe and damaging impact on the life and property. These earthquakes of magnitude 5 and above have disrupted the socio-economic conditions, thousands have been rendered homeless and hundreds have been killed. This study shows horizontal and vertical accelerations, return period, risk assessment, critical management and measuring.
