The southeastern Zagros is situated at the eastern tip of the Zagros system, close to the Makran accretionary prism and Oman Mountains. This orogenic system results from the ongoing collision between the Arabian and Central-Iran plates. In this context, the main features of the studied area are; (i) the existence of numerous emerged or buried salt diapirs, made up of Late Precambrian Hormuz salt moving since the early Paleozoic, and (ii) the irregular along-strike shape of the collision-related detachment folds, with frequent apparent bending, change in width and structural association with salt diapirs which express the control of deformation by the pre-existing salt structures.
